101,000 miles and it threw the dreaded code. Heavy shaking at idle, almost stalling.   Just had my oil changed last week, too.

Try seafoam in the crankcase for a couple hundred miles and change the oil again. It worked for me, but I still get occassional hickups and the MIL is almost always on.

I had the CEL at 46K miles but it went away on its own. My dealer checked out the car and all appears to be running smoothly. So no service yet.

got the car back today. 6800 total on the bill. ouch.

Had the two upper oxy. sensors replaced, battery replaced, and water pump. they covered the labor on those (cam adjuster job was 5300 by itself.)

runs like a champ now, and better continue to...

For those of you with no problems how often are you changing your oil?

I've been told to increase my frequency sooner than 5K miles.
