Engine just rebuilt about 25K ago/100K wrnty (odom. Just rolled to 100000 miles). Car has been running fine all along until about 3 months ago, started having a weird noise from under front passenger side- sounded a bit like a fan or gear, intermittent, so hard to check. Never seemed to affect the performance of the car (I drive 56 miles round trip each day to work). Got in the car today (outside temp 78) and it started but sounded like it missed a gear or something then caught. (Battery replaced 2 weeks ago). Was immediately idling very rough, almost a vibrating feel in whole car. Backed out and when I shifted into drive, check engine light came on. It did not feel like, when pulling back into driveway, that it would have even made it to the end of block. I can go to the mechanic tomorrow morning, but not sure I want to drive it that far of if it will make it- about 4 miles.
