Thanks for the quick response but the code your speaking about starts with a "P" for powertrain I'm looking for the code that starts with "C" for chassis it's been a pain to find anything all help is appreciated thanks again Reelin68

Oops! Sorry about that. Here's a link I found. Give it a read and see if it relates to your issues. I skimmed it, and it seems this guy had the C code also. He changed the plugs and the O2 sensor, cleared the codes, and everything has been fine. But you're right, not much info for that code.

Thanks for the help I'll see what the outcome is and share my info!! Appreciate the perseverance
