I was driving on a highway on ramp yesterday with my windows down and heard I giant pop. It made my ears ring. It sounded like a fire cracker and had a funny smell that came along with it.

Today I threw a CEL when i started the car. I don't have a dashhawk or AP. What do you think could be the culprit.

Where'd the pop cone from? The cars running normally otherwise? Get that code scanned!

I couldn't tell where the pop came from but it definitely seemed very close to were I was sitting. But anyway thanks guys. I forgot that auto stores have scanners. I'll go tomorrow to have it scanned and hopefully I can pick up a dashawk/AP for a good price pretty soon.

And if flames shoot outta your ass instead then you can't blame the car... it was the Mexican food and 10+ Coronas!!

My guess -
random misfire code
resulting unburned fuel which lit off when it hit the cat

means nothing tho till you get the code......

I got the code. It was Evaporative Emission Control Leak Detected (Gross Leak)

I cleared the code with the scanner. Can somebody tell me what that means????
