I think 1995 is OBD 1. my 94' is OBD 1, and is a pain in the rear trying to figure out the codes without having a shop lend a scanner...no one has them.

try doing the engine light blinking test to figure the codes.

mine throws the light every now and then as well, but I feel like mines due to the 02 sensor.

Do it right the first time !!!!!!!!!!
Oh I don't know about that.

Ever read all the safety stickers on products these days.
Each one is there because someone tried to sue a company because they were not warned to:
On a chain saw: "Do not try to stop chain with your hand or any body part"
Any body part????

On Washer AND Dryer: "DO NOT put any person in this washer/dryer"

On a curling iron: "For external use only!"

From adsm08: "DO NOT shoot foot to get DTC codes"
Now that's funny s__t !!!!!!!!!!

Take it to any auto parts store and have them run a free diagnostic by plugging into your ODBII (might be ODBI) and they can read the fault code.

I would hope that after 8.5 years he got it figured out.

But yes, most parts store will do free code reading on OBDII vehicles.

I'm laughing at myself a bit now too. This thread is only 4 years old. I looked at the OP's join date originally.
