My Dealership Adventure
a couple weeks ago i had a CEL come on and i went to the nappa parts and had it diagnosed. code was running too lean and i went to the dealership 1 1/2 weeks later and they found an 02 sensor to be the problem. i went in and the guy said there is 2 and theyll check what one it needs and order it so i could come in on a weds. they call on tuesday and say they need me to come in again to see what part it was again cause they had 2 numbers written down angry i did and they ordered it and i came in the next weds, aka yesterday. so i go in come back in an hour and see my car still on the lift. the guy comes out and asks me straight up if i ever did anything to the engine. i said Intake and axel back exhaust. he says you sure nothing else? i say yep never touched anything in there and had the parts installed at Tintmasters not myself and he agreed that wouldnt be the cause so i got off there. then he says he will keep it overnight and test drive it to see if the light comes back on. THIS WORRIES ME. i call the next day and see what he found and they tell me hes not in and just left to take it for a spin. im not sure on this but can they do shit like that? so now i gotta call back tomorrow and see whats up, if they havent found anything yet im gonna be pissed and tell them to get me a loaner. ill post tomorrow an update. if you read this far good job

they usually write down the number of miles that you have on your car before giving it to them. just see how much they added and then get pissed smile

I think the guy had a date and needed a nice car rofl

I've heard a lot on here about the AEM CAI giving a CEL, I think they have said the TPR Intake eliminates it, someone conform or deny this
