Check engine light came on. Had codes read came back p0110 which means bad intake air temperature sensor.
The check engine came on and when I took it to get the code read it came back P0110. The next day I took it in to my mechanic and the sensor and the circuit checked out fine. I am now in the process of trying to get into a dealer for the latest flash update for the PCM, so it hopefully, won't happen again.
