I guess your engine is trying to get your attention- if it could talk it would say: "After 20 years it's time you raised my hood!!"

After 10 minutes of composing myself to try to withhold sarcasm.. and ignore jam's post.. which is a bit difficult... It means check engine. You think? You need an OBDII scan. Most parts houses will do it at no cost. You will get a DTC fault code, probably will be a code the begins with P and 4 numbers. The most common cause is gas cap

schalk. Please allow me to begin by saying my opinion of you and your automotive knowledge is high;. I take your posts in good regard and respect them. But you don't know jamnblues. That is evidenced by your remark.You don't know a thing about the man. He really is one of the 'goodguys'
