Check engine light comes on intermittently

(2009 Pontiac G6)
in Ferndale, MI on January 13, 2014
The check engine light on my 2009 G6 has been coming on intermittently. I thought it was a gas cap issue as it had come on months ago, then shut off on it's own, but now it has come on again, but does go back off intermittently. We did recently have a cold snap here (temps. of -16 with -40 windchills), though it has thawed out now, and when I took it to a mechanic, he said that may have caused the light to come on, reset the light, but pulled the code which is p0010, however the light has been coming back on has usually been going back off. Any advice?

As stated earlier verify that the oil level is good, current on oil change interval and check your receipt of last oil change and make sure that the proper weight / viscosity was used. If all those are accurate you would want to have a qualified technician perform a diagnosis so that you don't start replacing unneeded components. We are local, if you have any other questions please stop by for a free consultation or give a call if you have any further questions.
