Should have had the engine scanned, it was a warning, Basic no start inspection; fuel, spark, and compression.

I'm taking it in Monday morning. Any ideas of cost for me and what it could be?
COMMENT by , April 12, 2014
I don't know what the rates are in MT. but without testing I couldn't say for sure what it is, once it's checked then a price would be easy to give you. Right now all I can do is suggest some possibilities of what to check.

What should I check?
COMMENT by , April 12, 2014
What do you know and what equipment do you have to check anything with. That's why I mentioned the basics of what it needs to work.

Will do
ANSWER by , April 12, 2014
Just under 60,000 miles , Maybe warranty? READ your EMISSIONS warranty booklet that came with the car , Certain emissions items are covered federally for at least 80,000 miles .

I'm in Canada Not sure if it's the same
COMMENT by , April 13, 2014
Sorry , I was going by the "MT".Thought you were in Montana. Canada may still have laws pertaining to emissions in your area , maybe google , bing , whatever , if nothing in the owners manual, or other book that came with car. Good luck.
