Zee,Thanks for replying, No meineke used after market parts. They change the 2 converters,and the 2 senors,one before the converters and one after the converters.As I said before,the engine light came on,about 6 months after they(meineke),install the part. I toke the truck back to the dealership,to have the engine light check out,they told me the same problem came up, (same codes as before). As of right now,the engine light haven't come back on,since the dealership check it out, meinekie,is telling me,they want to see the engine light on,and check the codes for them self. When or how long,will it come on,or was it a freaking thing,and converters are ok! Please help! In a few week,I am taking a hunting trip to N,Carolina. Thanks Joe!!!
