Hi jbloco, few things can casue this problem. Basic things first. Check your ignition componants like , spark plugs, wires,cap,rotor(if applicable). If you car runs good off idle then your Idle air control valve might be bad.

you need to find out what diagnostic trouble code has been set in the computer related to the light being on. you can go to a car parts store and they will usually retrieve the code for free, idea being that you will then buy some parts to resolve the problem. you can but you are certainly not bound to. the federal govt has established guidelines about when the check engine light must be lit, the standard is that if a condition exists that would cause the vehicle to exceed 1.5 percent of emissions for that model of vehicle as built, then the light must be lit. the rules do not prevent the light coming on for other reasons, but it must be lit for that reason. because of that rule alot of the time when the light is on it has something to do with emissions. that can mean that something is going on with O2 sensor, egr valve, couple other things. O2 sensors do fail, the nature of how they operate and where they operate (in the hot exhaust stream) causes them to eventually fail. anyway thing to do is find out what code is set and proceed from there. hope that helps

are you wearing your Seatbelt,are your doors closing all the way hatchback ajar ? i only ask as these would be the Dinging sounds your having chances are you have a bad door pin switch which isnt closin the loop as for your Check engine light being its OBD1 you will have to run a scan tool to see what the codes are that are throwing the Intermintent check engine light but as for the dinging it sounds like a Door pin switch thats gone bad try that 1st ....and this is not a solution but it will be close to it and also scans arent that expensive and it beats throwin Money at a problem that could be dont Guess there are at least 60 known Faults if not more that can Trigger that light to come on ....Goodluck

most likely you have a problem with your vacuum system. the check engine light is mainly for emission problems. it could the MAS airflow sensor as well though...
