Codes 29B5, 28B2, 27A1, and 2796 so i'm told. My problem is a lack of trust as the mechanic only stands to make 100. dollars in labor and the part is 1500. then why is he calling me once a week for the job?
If someone can tell me what to do before i let them change my computer , i'd appreciate it.
Sounds like DME internal RAM problem to me, but with out a detail test, it's only a guess.

Also a really bad EGR valve may also make such problem.

good luck
