Last month when I was stopped idling in my 2011 Chevy Cruze, I noticed the "check engine" light had come on. The car drove fine, and the light went off about an hour later. The same thing happened to me yesterday in the exact same circumstances. I have also noticed my Cruze sometimes shakes while I am stopped with my foot on the brake, almost as if the engine is trying to keep the car going forward.
I am strapped for money at the moment and my warranty has expired, so I have not been able to take my Cruze in to be looked at yet. Can anyone give me an idea as to what might be going on? Thanks.

I'd suggest stopping by a parts place and see if they'll read the codes for free. Some will. With the codes (not just the description), we can give you an idea of what might be wrong.

Mike Cross reviews why check engine light on but no codes. if you concern, you can visit AutoGuysLand site for more info.

Using OBD2 scanner to read the code and then will evaluate the issue.
