i'll make the story short... had the race header in for about 2-3 weeks so far.... i dont push the car hard at all, but earlier i just smashed on 1st n 2nd gear not grinding at all... took each gear up to about 8100 rpm.... n let off... then i was merging on the freeway, and about 2 minutes later my check engine light comes on... doesnt blink or anything, just stays solid.. i do have the defouler installed, along with CAI & ESMM... the car isnt making any sort of weird noises that i can hear, but what should i do to go about fixing this ???

Every Single Day Someone New Ask What They Should Do About The CEL. GO GET IT CHECKED OUT! We cant magically come up with a reason. You have to take it to Autozone, or the dealer or somewhere AND HAVE THEM TELL YOU!

Dont worry about it, even with the defouler the cel will still go on from time to time, mine goes off about once every 2 months or so, jus give it a day or 2 and it will go away, as long as the rh is the reason for the cel being on, if it stays on for a week or longer you might want to get the cell checked, i think you can get rid of the cel by disconnecting your battery, but I dont think its worth the hassle, but the only way to make sure the cel doesnt come back at all is getting k pro.. good luck

If it was a serious CEL you'll know just from how the car is running.

Still get it read to be on the safe side.

No problem :thumbsup: but Drum is right, to be on the safe side you can always get the code checked

I have the race header with defouler too (and a few more mods). My cell comes and goes, but what I just discovered, is that when I turn the AC on it goes away after about a half hour, then when I turn it off it comes on again? I think I am burning rich because of my mods, and the extra gas is getting use when i turn on the AC - just a theory, but getting K-Pro soon so I will fix that.
