Engine light ??


fist of all don't " smash " anything , if you want to spend money on parts change the IAC and clean the port it sits in , did you replace the fuel pump or did you take it some where ?

Engine light is on and I had it taken to a shop to be replaced and after replacing the plugs and coils I had it scanned and it pulled up the coils
