The check engine soon indicator came on in my car, and I'm wondering what it usually means...because I hate to pay a repair shop just to do a diagnosis.

Many places will read the codes for free -- Advance Auto Parts, Western Auto, Autozone -- this can help you narrow down the problem before taking it to a garage. There are about 150 different things the check engine light could be indicating.
