Question type: General

inside on the passenger side of the car what can i do to fix these problems

1 Answer


For check engine light the vehicle has to be hooked up to a code reader to see what code or codes come up and the A.C condensation drain line is clogged up. The drain line is on the passengers side under the hood coming from the fire wall will have to get underneath vehicle to unclog drain.
