Hi Everyone,

quick question...my engine light came on in my 2000 GT.
it came on about 5 weeks ago, i brought it in and paid $50 for the guy to tell me that the oxygen sensor was dirty, he sprayed it, and sent me on my way in 10 minutes.

now it is on again. i dont' really want to pay $40 for another 10 minute check, so i was wondering what are the common problems that people have noticed when their check engine lights have come on, and are there some simple ways to tell if it is a serious problem. it seems to drive fine...

thanks in advance.

There are dozens of things that can be wrong with the car when the CEL pops up. It's definitely a good idea to get the CEL code checked if you want to be positive you're fixing the right part (or to even have a clue on what to check). If you don't want to pay someone to do check it every time, you might want to pick up a code scanner, or even something like CarChip to diagnose the problem yourself.

As for the current CEL, it could possibly be a faulty O2 sensor. Cleaning it coudl've just brought it up to marginal sensitivity. What mods do you have?
