1996 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Question: i need to know what trouble shoot codes mean so can order parts 216

a code never identifies a bad part, just a failed system. a good shop will do a proper diag and find the failure without guessing.
what codes did they find??

there are no codes for those numbers. go to autozone or pepboys for a free code pull and verify those codes for us.

are you sure it is a 96?? thats obd2 and any code reader will work. if it is a 95, then you need a shop with an older scan tool.

P0216 Injector/Injection Timing Control Circuit
P0236 Turbo/Super Charger Boost Sensor “A” Circuit Range/Performance
P0114 Intake Air Temperature Circuit Intermittent
P0118 Engine Coolant Temperature Circuit High Input
