Do you get a check engine light at any time?

When was the last time you cleaned your MAF sensor?

Recent maintenance? Last tuneup?

Yes, The light does come on at that time. I just bought it a few months ago, So I have not done any type of a tune up yet. The PO said he just did all that. He took REAL GOOD CARE of it. I will check all this out and get back to you.

How many miles does it have on it?
Need to find out what the P code is that is stored in the computer. A lot of the auto parts stores have OBDII readers that you can use for free.

If you have no previous maintenance information, I'd do a tune up, clean the MAF sensor, check the air filter, etc.

The link in my sigline has links to maf cleaning, spark plug replacement etc.

:cheers:
