Your engine will set codes if you drive it more. Sometimes you have to drive a while before the CEL comes on.


My guess though would be an ignition miss from a bad coil.

Have had 2 coils replaced. Those codes went away 2 weeks ago. Changed throttle body 6months ago.

Getting code about oil pressure now(same code came up temporarily when oil was low last week but cleared after adding oil). Had oil changed yesterday. Wondering about computer malf.

Hey guys I just needed to input because I think I actually found the solution. I know there are a lot of people saying it’s bad coils, but unless your check engine light is on then it isn’t!!! My dad is a genuious and discovered why my 2007 caddy Srx had intermittened shakes of knocks. It’s because of the “purge valve”? He discovered that my gas cap was on tight . I never screw my cap tight. This might sound strange but put your ear to your gas tank with the cap off. If you header a funny sound it’s becaise your purge valve needs to be replaced. It’s a 23$ part and can be installed by yourself!
