Default Check engine light?

It came on last night seems to run fine other than the exhaust rattle. I changed the oil 2-3 days ago. I don't think I screwed it up. I was wondering if a bad fuel filter or air filter would make the light come on. I want to replace both at least the air filter.

Anyone know which K&N filter to buy? Anybody have other reasons this may have came on?

Okay now I have found a problem. It is draining fuel like crazy. I have used like 3/8 tank in about 50 miles more so in the past 15 or so when the check engine lighht came on. I guess I'll be taking it to the shop.

I called the shop yesterday only to be informed that they won't be open till' monday so I searched and searched on here and didn't find any other thread with this same problem. I decided to reset my ecu and when I turned it back on the CEL was off and the fuel guage went up from a little below half to between half and 3/4.

I drove it last night for about 15 miles didn't notice any movement of the guage so I hope this worked. Any comments would be much appreciated.

Default K&N FILTER

I know about the filter you want. Go to the local Autozone and ask them for # 33-2232 K&N filter. At 8.25% tax I paid $45.45 for it. A seat-of-the-pants gauge says the filter was an improvement over the stock panel filter, not to mention after the resonator box removal, you can hear the turbo spool-up and blow-off better vs. stock after resonator removal.

I can't tell you anything about that check engine light. I need to clear one up myself. I disconnected the factory blow-off valve from the hose rerouting it to the intake hose. The sound was great, but the idle was rough and it turned on the light. Now I need to get that taken care of.
