    check engine light

    I got this 05 wrx, and naturally i like going really fast sometimes, well yesterday on my way to work i was doin 120 in a tunnel and the check engine light suddenly came on. i did the diagnosis, and it said "Manufacturer contrl ignition system or misfire". i went back into advanced auto parts and asked if they knew what it was and they told me to ask the dealership i bought the car from whens the last time they did a tune up(bought the car recently). im not sure what that manufacturer contrl ignition system or misfire means, can anyone help? i must say the dealership i bought it from was really cheap so i wouldnt be surprised if they didnt take well care of it.

    Did the car jerk at all while you were driving?

    if it was an injector it would not run normal, you would feel it. i know had an injector go bad.
