While taking my girlfriend to work this morning..
While in 4th gear I was getting tailgated by a large Nissan truck, so I pushed the pedal down toward WOT to move up and out of his way. All of the sudden I felt what I can only describe as like a "hiccup" type feeling from car and the CEL came on. I pulled off the hwy asap and checked the engine. No smoke, steam, smells, noises... Nothing out of the ordinary. I started the car back up and the car runs like normal (at least to my knowledge) but the CEL remains on.
Now I know none of you will be able to flat out tell me (I could be wrong) what the CEL light is on for but I'd like to at least find out the most basic and common reasons for it to trigger. Again thanks for all the help. I'm moving tomorrow morning (I thought I was at least) and need to try to find out if there's an issue asap. It's now 6:30am here and the dealership is not open yet. I'll call them soon
