I have a great running 87 tin top with a 16v EFI motor.
There is a "check engine" light lit.
My mechanic doesn't have a computer that can read the ECU.
Does anyone know where I can have this looked at in LA?
Thanks in Advance
Also, who is running old Zuks in the area?

Fixed

nobody here has a computer to read OBD-1 units.
My mechanic referred me to someone in Covington who was able to use a paper clip as a jumper between two of the sockets on the ECU plug.
It read out in a "flashing code" on the instrument panel... in this case two followed by three flashes. He then was able to decode that into meaning the intake air temp sensor was on the fritz... he then checked the sensor itself and determined that it was bad. NAPA was able to order one and it did the trick.
A week later, I found a sensor for about half the price, but too late to cancel a special order...
In Covington, LA the mechanic that solved the problem is Troy 985-893-4333
Best Regards
