Bad noises may or may not be indicative enough of a problem which can cause your car to throw a CEL ( Check Engine Light" - "CEL," not "cell" ;) ).


With OBD-II vehicles, you "pull" or "read" the CEL using some type of scantool, which plugs into the OBD-II port, and obtains the CEL-related code from the car's computer.


Most AutoZone stores will have a scantool, and they'll "pull" the code for you.


You can only pull/read a CEL if your CEL is lit. :)




Edit - Doh! Two minutes slow! Must type faster! :lol:
