light comes on then goes off. It came on my
husband drove it for a good amount of time, it then

Get the codes read, most parts stores do this now for free, write them down and repost back here and someone will jump in and help you with further diagnostics.

If at all possible stay from dealerships, they only pay their techs on a flat rate so if the problem isn't obvious they won't take the time to do any searching. I know cause I was once one of those Techs and know how their system works. I have found many problems when the light is off with my live data scanner, a cylinder misfire can be a number of things, bad spark plug, bad coil, weak injector, even a vacuum leak. So find a good independent shop, one that will listen to you and what you have done and you will be much happier with your vehicles maintenance and repair bills.
