check engine light comes on but when i shut the car off n restart it again the light stays off. mechanics telling me the light has to b on to test it (obd1), but my car has a (obd2) port under steering wheel. does the light still have to b on to get a code with a obd2 port? car must've been built late 95 n has a 96 or later hook up. obd2 don't know.
