    JOY! not but 20 minutes ago, while on my way back to work from getting lunch ... some guy pissed me off and so i accelerated quicker than usual (without launching my truck or burning out) to get across traffic while the spot was open ... i noticed that my truck's check engine light came on ... ohhhh boyyy. about 2 weeks ago my truck had a MAF sensor code thrown and a o2 sensor thrown. Auto zone ... being auto zone ... failed to tell me which o2 sensor failed. so as my last hope i reset the truck and the code went away. It turned out that fredo had bad gas :D hahah yeah ... bad gas ... but now, i haven't put gas in him in a while and he's sluggish ... looks like its back to auto zone for me! :furious:

    i'm going to go to auto zone first and see what's throwing the code...if its something stupid like last time i'll just reset the truck AGAIN and see if that works...if its something different then i guess i need to fix it ... TOE ... truck over everything.

    If it is throwing an O2 sensor code, it could be a problem with the o2 sensor and causing a bad air/fuel mixture.

    Resetting the computer never makes the problem go away lol. I had a similiar situation I went to Advanced when my CEL came on and they told me it was my injectors where clogged. Thinking they were full of it I checked the code on the computer and it was a MAFS, which ened up in the long run being a vaccum hose. Damn Autozone.

    ^Thats what they tried to sell me. I told them I don't think so. If it needs fuel stabilizer I will get it out of the garage at home. They tried to take me for a fool and sell me Injector cleaner. For there information, Mama didn't raise no fool lol.

    turns out it was simple, it threw the same code that it did last time...because auto zone never cleared the code (stupid ... grrr i hate that zone!) so i went out and got a code reader and cleared it myself ... :) tahhh daahhhhh

    ccheapest way to clear a code, unplug the battery for 10 seconds. (or turn the ignition on to make sure all the electricity is out of the system)
