Question about 2004 Dodge Stratus
The Check Engine light came on a few days ago. The car appears to operate the same as it did before the light came on. I am curious if maybe the oil is too low? There is about 3100+ miles since my last oil change. Also, could be my tires since I haven't aired them up in a while? I am going on a four-hour trip tomorrow and I am curious if my car is going to make it? Also this car has a little over 160,000 miles on it.

It seems like bad,dirty or loose wire harness connection somewhere in electrical circuit. This is very difficult to find if engine has problem intermittently. One method may resolve is to unplug wire contacts one by one inspect clean and re-plug. Inspect also all fuses if any loose seated, nad fuse case connections and support.

well when oil is cold its thicker
as the vehicle heats up the oil becomes thinner in the oil pan
in which when the vehicle reaches core temp the oil pump doesnt need to work as hard
heres some other areas to look at
bad oil sending unit
in the pan the oil pick up pump filter needs replacement
oil filter clogged
bad oil sensor
these things need to look for and adjust or replace
the oil pick up pump in pan needs to be serviced by service tech at the dealers this is something a do it yourselfer could not do on own with out proper tools

If it has never had plugs changed, i would suggest it. It can make a big difference.
Labor time is .8 hrs + 6 plugs = $80 - $150.
Take your car to a parts place and they will usually check and clear your light for free.
Firestone likes to up-sell everything, $650 is way too much for a basic tune up.
