My check engine light comes on at start up, goes off after a minute or so, then comes back on and stays on once the engine reaches operating temp. Sound like anything particular? Otherwise I'll go thru the list I got from doing a search on the CEL earlier.
My intake boot has a tear in it right where it clamps to the throttle body, about half way around. So I do need to replace that. Suppose it's a dealer or junk yard-only item.
Just did a R. front axle and wheel bearing R&R. Not a bad job. I'm impressed with the way these cars are put together. Too bad they had to make the outer CV joint part of the axle though. That seems kinda dumb.

How many miles??? How many miles have you put on it? Might as well just change the belts it you're not sure.

Then you're by-passing your air filter, and bypassing the MAF (Mass AirFlow meter). This screws up the ECU and from there, your fuel mixture. My bet is that's the source of the CEL. It should be easy to find a replacement at a junkyard.

The car has just over 131k on it, but I've only put a few hundred on it so far. I think I know the dealer that last worked on it, so may see if they have any records for repairs the PO did on it. Otherwise, I'll just go ahead and put new belts on it just to be safe. We kinda live out in the sticks, and the wife drives it the most. Don't need her getting stranded.

I was wondering about that. I did the EGR test per Haynes repair book, and it seems to be ok. I did the self test thing with the ECU, and that's what the code said to check. Guess I'll hit the wrecking yard this weekend and see if they have a good intake boot.
