1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata: Check Engine Light

April 29, 2013

1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata

While we've got a big upgrade in store for Project Miata, in the meantime, it continues to be driven. And, surprise, a check engine light.

What was surprising about the check engine light (CEL) that came on is that this is its first one. Modified cars are typically a magnet for CELs. Project Miata has been CEL-free. Until now.

Will get to the bottom of this.
