check engine light

Postby rexsmith » August 18th, 2021, 2:29 pm

The check engine light in my y12 is on and the mechanic said that is because I am using super gas and that I should use premium to stop the check light from coming on, but i have been using super for years even in the other y12 and never that problem.

any ideas?

Could be as simple as loose gas cap, to other issues like fuel pump failure. Go find somebody with the proper software on their scanner. I feel your mech using a cheap scanner or he now drop out the mango tree forceripe.

If its the HR15DE then no super is fine, however if you happen to have a Y12 which came with the MR18DE then this is not the first time I heard someone say that premium works better with that engine. But what are the chances that you do have the 18? I'd say go get another opinion. Your problem could be the spark plugs, coil packs, MAFS or even a timing tensioner or pulley. The more you can figure out on your own the better as plugs and coil packs aren't hard to swap. Only time consuming thing here is you have to remove your intake manifold to get access to those parts. Good luck.
