    Did the Check Engine Light come on or did the Wrench Symbol come on?

    Re: check engine light

    Both, first the engine light as I was getting to vegas, when I turned it off n then start it again I get the wrench symbol where the miles are. I'm worried, cause its a long drive back. Should I look for a mechanic?

    If the check engine light went away you should be safe. The wrench light is just a reminder that you have a service due soon.

    Unless your car goes into LIMP mode then you should be alright to drive it. Nitro is the resident VW tech. You can pm him (nitroscope or post on his "ask a vw tech" thread.

    Re: check engine light

    You should be fine. The check engine light is just saying one of your emissions components is out of specification and probably needs replacement. If the engine runs smoothly and hte light is not flashing, you will be fine to drive back. Have a dealer check it out as soon as you can.
