They were being lazy/stupid.6WitAttitude said:I think my problem was a low idle. I used a paperclip and adjusted the idle screw so its seems to be ok now. For some reason this one Autozone I went to said they couldn't check the CEL for this car.
There are plenty of guides here and elsewhere on the net to help you check the diagnostic codes. Haynes manual has it also. I would bet you are masking another problem by playing with the idle screw...:shrug:
