it keeps comming on and i don't know why... it's not throwing any codes. i've checked every time it comes on. all fluids are fine... if i shut the car off and turn it back on it goes away for a while, but of course, eventually comes back. anyone know what the hell's going on?

i have the same problem. i think i have narrowed it down to either an exhaust issue, mainly egr, or a vaccuum leak also pertaining to the egr

like i said its the same probelm i have, i am almost positive it has something to do with the egr. Maybe one day when i have some cash ill figure it out, this week im going to replace the erg gasket and check the vaccuum lines and maybe try to figure out what the hell is going on with it. Maybe then ill only have on egr in my car lmao!!!

hey wemet i want you to try something, after the check engine light comes on do you notice an increase in throttle response? I have been testing it out again tonight and after the light came on i had a quicker throttle response and it seemed like it would accelerate quicker. Also i have noticed that when the light is on i am able to reach higher speeds. I dont know what the hell it is and i know its annoying but it seems to me that whenever the light is on i can speed up and not hit a limiter :-? Im very confused by all this.
