The yellow light is a check engine light. Get it scanned for free at Autozone. They will also tell you what's wrong with it. Get back to us and we will help you from there. I would check your oil level quick just for shits n giggles just to make sure its full.

Should I not drive it until I find out what is wrong? I Did check to make sure the oil level was ok , and it looked full.

Trans Bhf bns?? An extra few seconds to be clear wouldn't hurt that much would it? There's zillions of acronyms out there.

LOL WTF????? Thanks zzinglish. I think what I meant to say was: If the oil is full and it drives ok then you should be ok. Sorry about that Wendy. Sometimes I post on my phone. Maybe that's the problem????

Still don't get it... What do bhf/bns stand for? Or r u saying you didn't type those letters?

Nothing its jibberish. I didn't type those letters at least not intentionality.

Ok so here is what happened. Jiffy lube did not hook up all hoses correctly which caused a vacuum leak. There is a bladder inside my value cover that was damaged and would not seal correctly when was idling. Jiffy lube had to pay around 1000.00 to replace the whole valve cover because you can't just replace the bladder.

Cool! No money out of your pocket then!

Yes, they are offering me a few free oil changes but at this point I think I'm going to pass.
