intermitantly with no apparent drivability problems. You don't need to live with this, it's not normal
and it is fixable. You may also have a fault that coud be affecting other components on the car and causing
unnessecary expensive damage. Also with todays emission test laws the 'check engine light' must be diagnosed
and repaired before the emission test can be performed.
