2.3 Liter code questions.

I have a 92 Notch.the check engine light is on.I have several questions.the fill tank grommit is garbage and will be replaced.could that couse the check engine light to come on.it seems logical to me that would couse a vacume issue.how do i check for codes and how do i reset them.i disconected the battery for 30 seconds and that did nothing.also the heater valve is blown.thats also getting replaced.Iboughta new battery.The old one was only 540 cranking amps.it now has 640.could the old battery couse the engine light to come on i also replaced the the oil pressure switch.the electric fan in powered by the battery with a on/off switch under the dash.whats the proper way to wire the fan.other then that how do do i check for codes in a 2.3 and make the check engine light go off. It makes me think theres something serious happening but the car runs great.

Battery wouldn't cause issues, until it caused other symptoms...

What is the 'heater valve'?

Best thing to do with the fan is buy a controller with a thermo-switch.

Joel has the best code post I've seen...

Sounds like electrical gremlins to me.

The tach is ran by the DIS module, make sure all of the wires are plugged in snuggly at the DIS. Loose wires to the DIS would trip a code, but I believe it would also cause the car to run in LIMP mode.

And the electrical fan issue is sadly common in these cars.

I hope you get those gremlins figured out.

I can't find a signature I like.... I am too picky

I can't think of what switch that may be?
Maybe you are looking at a temp sensor?

Any way you can post a pic?

What codes are you getting?
