so my light clicked on last night, called the dealer.
service dept says no big deal bring it in on the 20th, it's ok to drive.
thats over two weeks away, is it really cool to keep driving it.
the cel light is on solid, not flashing.
it's just a scary little picture, the block with a lightning bolt through it.
anyway just looking for a little reassurance, it's still under warranty
so if it does crap out it would suck, but i won't have to pay for it.
thanks

Re: check engine light question (TonyD)

Mine just went on today. Haven't called the dealer yet but I imagine they would say something similar as in your case. Car is sluggish. I expect a bad MAF most likely or some kind of 02 sensor failure. And I'm out of warranty <stinks> http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: check engine light question (TonyD)

With these cars, the check engine light can come on for practically no reason at all and it can also turn back off just as suddenly. As long as it doesn't start flashing (which is a very bad sign) then you should be just fine.
