Springfield, IL

Self-described MNA (Mr. Know-it-all) I've been in, around, under, next-to, and towed almost everything with wheels. I work at a very busy tire and auto repair shop alongside 3 Master-techs and 30+ year auto and tire sales veterans. I don't deal in absolutes, I work with Murphys' Law in my front pocket, and Common Sense is priority # 1.

You probably can replace the pcm yourself. But you will need a very expensive scan tool (1000+ dollars) to reflash the pcm when you install it. And you have to buy a new pcm also- that won't be cheap either!

Was the car driven into deep water and water filled the engine? Or has a head gasket failed and coolant gotten into the cylinders? Might want to answer that question first!

Not to be a wiseacre- reset your trip odometer when the low fuel light comes on- and then drive it till it stops- then you'll know for sure!
