If you are not having any driveability issues along with the CEL and the CEL is not flashing you should be OK to drive for a few days (limited mileage if possible) before have the engine control system fault codes read and diagnosed.

Possibly. Any idea what the code is?

Hi there.
My CEL light has been off and on & flashing on my 2000 T4R for almost 2 weeks .
The truck has not been well , misfire , poor accelleration . I changed the lead wires , gas cap , vacum box (black shoe box size,with hoses.) M.A.F sensor ,
Turns out all i had to do was take off the air intake , look under for the IAC valve 4 screws , clean with brake cleaner , and with care put it all back . No more CEL light , all is good . Lane , Vancouver BC Canada Good luck .
