Check engine light driving 2014 GT500 off showroom floor
Car had probably been sitting in the showroom for 2-3 weeks and hadn't been cranked in that time. Salesman jumps in it, cranks it and instantly revs the thing like Jimmie Johnson. My immediate thought, "why the f would he do that? Trying to break it?"
Dad buys car, regardless. We're driving it home (5 miles down the road, haven't even pushed the car past half throttle/4.5k rpm and I hear what sounds like engine knock. I ask my dad, is the check engine light on? No. Seriously about a mile down the road, it comes on. On our way back to the dealership we notice it happens usually with the clutch engaged on decel, and also when somewhat in throttle. It's at the dealership now and the technician will check it out on Monday. Guy was trying to tell me it was something minor and I just have a hard time believing a handbuilt car with fairly premier components is jut going to have a check engine light with 200 miles on the odometer. My first thought was bad gas but when it started doing it during decel I also remembered the salesman revving it to the moon on ice cold start and thought maybe it spun a main bearing? Idk. Pretty gigantic cluster####.
Anyone else heard of this or have any clues?
