Engine Light

Hey everyone,

Driving to work this morning and my “check engine” light came on in the bottom right corner of the instrument cluster. I’ll have to check it out when I get home later, but can any of you tell me some common things I should be checking for? Only had the car for less than 5 months and had zero problems at all, no odd noises or anything out of the ordinary I’ve noticed either and I’m very meticulous about this car. Thanks.

Honestly, any responses like what you are looking for will be pointless until you read the code. Even for one code, there are a multitude of possible causes; multiply that by the dozens of possible codes and you get my drift.
