Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The check engine light came on about 2-3 weeks ago. It doesnt stay on. Some days its on and some days it is off. I
took it to autozone and the reading said it was a P100 problem.  I need it fixed ASAP because the inspection sticker
is now expired and it won't pass with the light still on. Please provide any information on the problem ad how to fix it.
Thanks for any help!
