CEL LIGHT COMING ON

2008 Suzuki SX4 • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 31,000 miles

2008 SX4 sedan - I recently got an oil change. Two days later I started the vehicle, and noticed that the check engine light comes on and flashes. When I let the enfine idle, the CEL goes off. I attempted to move the vehicle and noticed the engine was running rough. Any ideas? I have not popped the hood as I di not have time, It almost feels as if the spark plug wires are not properly making contact - just a guess.

You will have to first go get a scan done to identify the set fault code as indicated by the MIL, post that code here for further assistance.

Fault code pulled is PO302, Misfire on Cylinder #2. From what the mechanic told me it is under warranty, so I have to take it to the dealership and they do not have an appointment until 1/7/2011. The CEL no longer displays and the engine idles fine. Is it safe to drive? Please advise. Thanks.

Yes it should be OK to drive until then
