Default check engine light

how do you check codes without a scanner? its a 96 sebring conv. the problem is that it runs rough. replaced plugs,wires,and coil the thing that gets me is that it only does it sometimes and other days it runs fine but the check engine light stays on all the time . i just had the head rebuilt and new gasket put in. i have a non factory fuel line on that goes to the fuel rail could that cause the problem?

its OBDII, you have use a scanner,...try going to a parts store like autozone, and they will usually pull codes for free.

Hello,

I work at AutoZone, so when you go in and ask for the OBDII scanner, AutoZone will require that you leave a credit card with them while you are using the equipment... you know just to make sure that you don't steal it. Just some FYI- the people who work at AutoZone are NOT allowed to help you use the code scanner, all we can do is verbaly instruct you on how to use it. If employees of AutoZone are cought helping someone run codes, like if they see our hands on the scanner and we're in/next to your car... we (autozone) will/can be charged $600.00 for every employee who was/on the clock when the inncodent took place... and that can be a steep fee.. So please be careful...

sounds to me like your cams may be slightly out of time, but that's the only thing I can thing of if you're sure it's not misfiring. I know those mitsubishi engines don't like being worked on unless you overhaul the whole damn thing.

what are you talking about? how would the cams get out of time, unless it jumped time, then it would barely run. she didnt even say what engine is in the car.

That's very true and if the cams were off just a little bit, or they are getting off for one reason or another, it may do it, but it could just make it knock a little on that note. it could be any number of things like I said. Even the timing could be off for the distributor... im out
