Tom asks: My "check engine" light comes on more frequently. It is still intermittent, and according to the owners' manual, needs only be addressed if it stays on. Yet, when driving, I've had it stay on for a few minutes before going out. Should I deal with it? What problem does this indicate, and what are the fixes?

There is probably a problem - how grave, I don't know. FWIW, if you count the flashes you will see that it is sending a numeric code which means something to the repair folks at Ford and will help them diagnose the problem. I don't believe that the meanings to the numeric codes are published in owner's manuals but I could be wrong...

g!
