    I searched and didn't see a thread title that was spot on this. I'm concerned...

    Just to see the power difference, I cruised my 93 around for a few days with the "ECT" power button on. It was fun and interesting. I was just driving to work and shut if off. My check engine light immediately came on.

    What did I do? Fry a sensor? Any help on what to look for would be great. I'm going to go pull the code, but I dont have time for a few days. Am I okay?

    Really??

    Literally takes less than a minute. Heck, you could do it next time you're buying gas.

    I thought it needed an OBD I reader. I figger'd it out. Never no mind.
