MIL Indicator Flashing
Just wondering if anyone else has seen this or what the cause might have been if you did.
I was coming back from VA yesterday driving to NY and about 100 miles before home the MIL light comes on and starts flashing! I immediately freak out thinking something might be damaging going on with the engine as I am aware if this light flashes it's recommended to stop or pull over. It blinked for about a minute and then eventually just went out. The car definitely ran weird as it was blinking - went to go push the gas and it basically just bogged down or cut power.
I have it scheduled to take into the dealer tomorrow to see what happened. Hopefully it stored some code so they can diagnose it properly. Funny thing is that it never came back on and vehicle actually now feels like it's running better (throttle response, trans shift - don't know could be just my head but something happened).
Thankfully I haven't tuned the car yet - just ordered my Trinity today and looking to install the new tune later in the week. Hopefully get this issue addressed before I do that.
Let me know if I should be concerned or if others have experienced this?
