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.
