So, the Service Engine Soon light turned off this morning as I was driving in to work. I called to see about making an appointment anyway and the guy I talked to said he wouldn't bother bringing it in. The cold weather we've been having can lead to those sort of lights coming on and then going off.
So, as long as the light stays off things should be okay. I still need to get around to getting the rear brakes replaced and the oil changed, but the engine is fine for now.
Oh, and the Dell Dude was busted for possession of pot.
