Default Why is my engine check light keep going on? 1997 Honda Civic with 193k.?

In the last 2 weeks the has been on and I take to the auto mechanic and the hand held computer returns a 10 code and the computer is reset.

I had the catalytic converter was replaced in November 2007 as well as the oxygen sensor.

I took the car to the shop and another test was run with another computer and it showed an oxygen sensor problem. The sensor was cleaned out and the car is fine.

Maybe your fan belt is slack which means the alternator is not charging the battery, and it is draining away.

That code is for the intake air temp sensor on pre 95 honda vehicles. In 96 all codes went to a P0000 type configuration. Like P0420 for a bad cat. There is no P0010 code. So your code sounds a little fishy. Sounds like you should take it back to the mechanic.
