Check engine light?

So I was driving home this afternoon and noticed the check engine light came on. I restarted it after I got home and it still stayed on. Everything looks good as far as fluids go. Any suggestions?

If your check engine light is coming on there should be a code that comes up telling you what the problem is. Do a search here "check codes", it should tell you how to retrieve the code. I think it could be something as simple as a loose gas cap. Good luck.

Yeah. Only thing I found was the Coolant is about an inch below the add level in the reservoir. Maybe thats it huh?

Got the code: it is P0122. Sounds like a throttle issue?

Replace the TPS. Easy to do and can be picked up from any parts store.
