Is this what is described as "Safe Mode". Is there anywhere I can go for a list of possible causes. I will have the engine scanned for codes. Can anyone tell me if the Advance or Autozone scanners will work on this engine. If not, what do I need.
Those stores can't scan it.
You might have a throttle position sensor issue, under valve cover harness issue, or many other things. Safe mode is rare on these.
Auto Engunuity is amazing
I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.
