Asked by Sep 04, 2013 at 10:20 AM about the 1999 Lexus RX 300 AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just bought a 1999 Lexus rx300
yesterday and I took my sister for a
ride in it and I drove over a speed
bump going very slow and next thing
I know the check engine light is on. I
am taking it to get checked today

I'm not sure. I don't know anything about cars so that's what I'm trying to figure out. I'm bringing it in to get looked at as soon as I get off work to try and figure it out
