haha- calm down, breath, grab a 10mm socket wrench and open your Hood.

With the socket wrench unscrew the Negitive terminal "-" of your battery for about 5 minutes to reset the ECU.

After 5 minutes, screw the Negitive terminal of the battery back on tight and reprogram your radio stations and clock. After this you won't have a check engine light.

Hope that helps

yep, thats correct... but you might also wana plug that hole with a cap or something that will prevent air from reaching THAT particualr sensor... this may be where you problem lays... air is intering the valve and telling your ECU that there is a loss of pressure.

im only sugesting this because I saw it happen ONCE before.

a trip down to the local home-depot will give you plenty of ideas on how to plug that hole - secialy the plumbing section smile

I hope this helps!

-BTW, thanks steve! that would have been my first sugestion too smile
