I may not argue with them, but I will always answer their questions.

"How do you know that just because that light's on it's going to fail?"

"Because when the light is on, I push a button for the option fail"

Quoted from o-din:

"Sorry sir, your car won't pass with the check engine lite on, so no point in testing it or taking your money today. We recommend getting it repaired and drive it about 100 miles and when you come back we will verify it is now ready to test"
The usual replies-
"It's always been on and it's always passed"
"I just had the oil changed"
"My mechanic says it can't be fixed"
"You don't know what you are talking about"
"It's a little thingy or a sensor"
"It's just an electrical problem that doesn't affect smog"
"I'll go get my oil changed and come back"
"My mechanic tells me it's a bad gas cap"
Yep, I've heard them all but refuse to argue with any of them.

Hey at least I’m a mechanic in ND.. cats plugged? Cut the dang thing off, recycle it, and buy some pheasant strips for the old lady!

Check engine light can be reset by disconnecting the battery for 60 seconds and reconnecting it.

"Sure thing sir. Then go drive it 100-200 miles without the light coming back on, and come back and I'll see if all the monitors are ready"

I was a few hundred miles out of town the other day with 12k lbs behind my Cummins when the check engine light came on. This can be a critical situation in diesels so I plugged in my blue driver on the fly while driving and read the codes on my smartphone. Was just a torque converter solenoid code from a funky shift with all that weight behind me while in the hills. No big deal. Cleared the code while driving and it never came back on. Blue driver also has tons of other options including smog check.

Blue driver is a must have!

Nice item. The cheap handheld one at work is great. The pricier they get, the more buttons you gotta push to get where I need to be.

Most our customers say "you very good on yelp, can I do $5 off?"

And then you read them your bad review and say "Do I sound like the kind of guy that gives discounts?"

More like "how I do?" while waving their phone.

I say "I have no idea, I've never owned one of those".
