I'm getting a intermittent check engine light. It will come on and seem to idle low and I can't find a obd reader to work. Any help would be appreciated.
Your description is not good enough to make out code. The key is length of flashes, some are longer and some shorter. Also there could be more than one code and the codes will repeat as long as switch is on.I'm having a hard time figuring out the codes. It flashes twice really quick, then a pause then 2 flashes back to back then 1 then after a pause 6 flashes. Any help would be appreciated.
Yes it works, you’ve got 2 codes 21 & 62.Let me know if this link works otherwise I'll need to compress the video
No I don’t think the e85 could cause the codes. Car idling low could be a few problems, one of which is IAC servo (which has a test procedure), ECU problems which are getting more common with bad capacitors like earlier years. But with temp sensor code, that would be first place to start as it can have a major impact on engine performance in many situations including no start. I won’t even worry about VIC code at this point, as worst a non-working VIC could do is cause minimal performance issues at low/middle or high rpm ranges.So I pulled the electrical plugs on the temp sensor and the Vic motor and then plugged them back in and no change. I want to bring something up just to get some input. About a week ago he put 2 gallons of e85 in with a full fill up of 91 octane. Do you think this could have done anything to why we are getting codes? Car idles low. I can purchase a new temp sensor but not sure what we need for the vic issue.
