My engine light just came on today. Should I take it to the dealership or to a local mechanic. What did you guys do?

Re: 5th Gen engine light came on!!!

or maybe it just your gas cap make sure that it really close and tight. it happened to me while ago i had my engine light on and i took to dealership and all they did is just tighten the gas cap and remove the battery and put it back again.

Take it to a local auto zone and have them test it for u. They will do it for free. In my experience the codes thrown most have been for the o2 sensors or catalytic converter.

Re: 5th Gen engine light came on!!!

Don't forget the EGR. I've had issues with the clogging of the passages in the intake and a dead solenoid.

The only other codes I've had after 250k are misfire (under load,bad plug wires), catalyst not working (replaced it, fixed), and O2. The O2 was only after I replaced the factories with Bosch aftermarket when I did the cat. Big mistake. I put the factories back in and the problem is solved.

Re: 5th Gen engine light came on!!!

best bet is to take it to autozone and have them get the code for you and then go from there.
