The check engine light of my 2009 Rio is on. Likely some emission problem.

What is the most likely problem?

What is the best and least expensive source for an engine computer code reader?

Do I need one?

Welcome HighdesertRi,

We can't give you the most likely problem. There are many possibilities.

In Texas, our autoparts stores will pull the code for you for FREE. I purchased a cheap reader from Harbor Freight tools so that is an option too.

I suggest you tell us your mileage and where you are from. (Fill out your info)

Give us a code and I'm sure someone here can help ya.

One of the best purchases I've ever made was the Scanguage II. Besides the extra information it shows me, I can see codes come up as I'm driving and move it from car to car. Plugs into the under-dash diagnostic port or the under-hood port. Pricey but worth it imo.
