    Engine Stutter

    I'm noticing a consistent stutter in the motor when I accelerate starting around 3200 rpms. Seems like i feel it when I do a light acceleration vs hard acceleration. It feels like a misfire or something similar. Anyone have any experience with this?

    No Codes w/o Engine Light?

    I think I saw this mentioned in an older thread, but did some searching and didn't find a definitive answer. Is it true that if you don't have a check engine light on, you won't have any trouble codes? I had always thought with cars there are certain codes that trip the light, and more minor...
