check engine light on after stuck in snow
I got my 1998 Avalon stuck in the snow today after being parked in a ski area parking lot for 8 hrs. It snowed 10+".
I was rocking the car putting it in drive and reverse i changed gears to fast when the rpms were reved going forward into reverse. Shortly after this my check engine light turned on. It could have been because I had been stuck for 25min spinning my tires...or maybe worse tranny. Driving home I did not notice anything odd with the tranny shifting... I am hoping for the best.
Has anyone had an experience like this,
I will only drive the car when I need to, ie to work 1mile each way until I can go to the toyota mechanic next mon.
