I never jump into a car without researching it but if you need it ASAP, have your mechanic look it over before over buy it. He can tell you the good and the bad and the price to get it running properly. Might be more than you think.

The check engine light may be on because of the K&N Air Filter System. I'm not a big fan of these cold air intake systems because the oil used in the filter tends to contaminate the mass airflow sensor. In addition there may not be a provision for the intake air temperature sensor. If this is the case and it's just left unplugged, the check engine light will remain on. HTH. - Jim

If if does not pass smog I would not buy it for $200.
