Thumbs down CEL came on today.

can autozoo check it? its the pre obd2 connector (eec-iv)

weird thing is my truck doesnt act differently when it comes on and seems to drive fine.

the light comes on for a few min and then goes off for another few and comes back on.

I'm wondering if it might be an oxy. sensor. since i got 157k on the clock and idk if they have been changed by the looks.

it will be next tuesday before i can get it on a scanner and wanted to get some ideas about what you guys think first thanks!

i dont think they can check obd 1 but you should be able to check it with a paper clip by bypassing the connector. im sure someone can show you how on here or look on TRS they have more info on the older rangers.

well i know i can scan it cause we did it to my old ranger also obd-1 and it works. i just dont got the scanner at my house lol and its almost 200 dollars for it. and i want a scanner anyway so i might fork out for it.

my biggest thing is its just intermitent when it comers on then goes off.

You will have to go to a mechanic and get them to check it. Advance and Auto Zone can only scan OBDll

Wrong, that was only a deal on the West Coast IIRC. I still have my codes read at Autozone all the time.
