My wifeís car had a coolant in the oil. So, a gasket was replaced,
engine cleaned up, oil change twice etc. The mechanic said #6
cylinder wasnít getting fuel (good compression and firing, not no
poof). So, the fuel injector was replaced. I picked it up today, and
it ran well. However, these three light now are on. THe mechanic had
left already, so I talked to him on the phone. He said he didnít do
anything to cause them to come on and that he assumed the lights wer
on when it came in the swhop, but to bring the car in next week and
heíd look at it.
The car has 68,400 miles on it, and the ownerís manual seems to
indicate that when the oil is changed at 67,500 miles the "monitor"
is supposed to be reset.
I have had my car worked on by this shop before, so I "trust" him (I
guess). So, my question is: what could have happened? Just unusual
timing with the service engine soon? How can I reset whatever monitor
that is (disconnect battery for a couple of minutes?)? what abuot the
other lights? Could the mechnic have knocked something around when
working on the car?
