Check Engine light has me paranoid
ok, yesterday, for no apparent reason (i wasnt driving it hard and everything felt perfectly fine) my check engine light came on when i started it up. As i was driving, everything felt fine, nothing out of the ordinary, but my light still stayed on. later last night i met some friends out of town, and had my car off for a good twenty minutes or so, but when i got ready to leave, i turned the car on and the light was still on.
however, after about 5 minutes or so of driving, the light just went off as i was going down the road. i figured that the problem or fluke was over and was greatful there wasnt any problem, apparently. I woke up this morning, turned the car on normally, and it was fine. just an hour or so ago i started it up again to go somewhere and the light turned on again. i havent done anything to the car and it still feels like it drives, handles, and shifts perfectly fine.
WTF is going on!! as most of you know i have had a looong history with this car despite having it such a short time, so i am (at least i think) understandably freaking out about my car's well-being.
