You need to have the code read before anyone here would be able to tell you anything

you can get it read at autozone or advance auto parts. The code readers will be able to read the history. The light doesn't have to be on.

You should be able to get the codes without going to the parts store. The codes should be non volitile and still be there useing the EVIC or the proceedures in the 100 tips listed above.

You have to read the code first to identify the source of the problem. The most common cause of engine codes is a gas cap that is not sealing properly. My replacement Stant locking cap caused the computer to throw a code. After replacing the locking cap with the original factory cap, it went away.

Here is a great site to identify your codes after they are read:
