ok, so what's going on is that my jeep has the little engine light turned on right now, and after a few seconds of being turned on, i get the annoying little "DING".
I did the code check (turned the system on and off several times till the OD went to all dashes) and it just display's "DONE" and goes away. so there are no error codes in the system.
the jeep seems to run fine, and drives the same, considering (i'll explain later). the only thing out of the odinary is that its getting 12-13mpg in the city instead of its normal 14-15.
now, i don't want to go running off to the dealer because of what happened last time it did this. yes, its done this before. the light came on one evening when i was leaving work, so i stopped at the dealer since it was on the way home.
they said the computer was reporting an "EVAP leak" and the checked the whole system with a dye and found no leaks, and cleared the code, drove it and let it run for a few minutes and the code never came back. they said it might have just been bad gas or something. so i paid them $100 to tell me nothing was wrong and to turn the light out.
I REALLY DON'T WANT TO DO THAT AGAIN. F#&K'n DEALER!
so, what could be the problem? and how can i make the dealer do something other then turning the light out and charging me. does it help that the first time it happend was only 3 weeks ago?
can i just pull the plug on the jeep (aka remove battery) and let it sit for an hour or so to clear it's memory and go from there?
i don't use the radio, so i couldn't give one rat's ass about loosing the presets the mechanics at the dealer set on my radio.
any ideas? help? tips? ways to f#&k the dealer instead of me getting f#&k'd again?
and when i meant it drives fine considering, i meant that there are some other things going on with it that were not present when i brought it. but i believe its just wear and tear on the tires.
for example, when ever i take a hard turn to the left, there's a vibration and almost grinding sound coming up the steering wheel. no noise, just a vibration in the steering wheel. stuff like that...
