This light popped up, then went off a couple times and is now back on again? Could this be a number of things? Something major?

Where can i get the code read for free?

thanks guys..

Yes, it could be a number of things. None major in the sense that they'll strand you, but the price tags are pretty variable. The cheapest thing that ever caused an SES light for me was a loose gas cap. The most expensive thing was a catalytic converter.

But you can be sure it's something, especially if it keeps coming back. Don't know where you can get it checked for free, but I wouldn't leave it too long.

They just replaced the converter a short while ago under the emissions warranty, I wonder if this could be related?

took it in to autozone and the fella read the code and he said it said "fuel air metering"

what the heck could this mean? 02 sensor?

My rover did the same thing. It light was coming on after 10 min of driving then go off after I shut of the truck. Then the light started to come on sooner, then stayed on all the time. It was an oxygen sensor for me. You will need to find out if it is one of the upstream or downstream ones. Different part numbers and I think that is because the wiring is longer on one of them.

Mine does that if I run less than premium "fuel". ( big brother Florida government only lets us buy that ethanol crap). But as long as I feed it the premium, it stays out.
Could also be a cat converter leak of course.

More than likely the PCV hoses have perished at that age if you've not replaced them yet (BMW dont use oil resistant hoses for their oil vapour hoses so they melt after a few years) do a search, I did a write up of it somewhere "PCV Hose Replacement"
