Resetting CHECK ENGINE light '95 NAS 90 SW
I took my truck into a local mechanic that works on all sorts of cars including classic ones as my engine was making a clacking/tapping sound at idle that increased in speed when I stepped on the gas but soon disappeared. I've lived with it for a while but a gas station attendant thought it could be a rod or something coming loose and suggested I have it looked at.
Normally I would take it into the local LR dealer (Princeton) but the only mechanic versed in Defenders isn't there anymore. Anyway, my local guy removed the valve covers and intake plenum and removed/cleaned the rocker arms and oil passages and noticed no unusual wear that would be detrimental to continued use. He halfway suggested that I could replace the lifters for about $1000 but that would not guarantee solving the noise issue.
I was charged $311 and it still makes the same noise but if I can drive it knowing that nothing bad is going to happen, I'll live with it.
However, now my check engine light is on. I'm thinking he didn't reset it when he opened up the engine. Is there a way for me to reset it or let me know how to let him do this since I don't think he knows Rovers well. I just checked and it is an error 17 code that lights up.
