My check engine light came on last week. it went out for about a day but has been on now for a couple of days. The manual says i can drive the car for a few normal cycles to see if the light stays on. please advise.

    You should get it checked out, continuing to drive the car can cause damage to other components, especially the catalytic converter. You can get the codes read out for free at some parts stores, then post the codes here and we can give you a much better idea as to what is going on.
