    Second check engine light in my car's existence. (First was for a bad throttle body and a throttle positioning sensor, got those replaced under warranty.)

    I've attached a screenshot from my phone, reading the Bluetooth OBDII devices I have. What do y'all make of this?

    1. I only use top tier 87 octane gas
    2. I use a techron additive every 10k miles
    3. My car is a 2013 base with 38k miles
    4. I can't hear any knocking, though my exhaust heat shield may be a little loose (hear a rattle every now and then)

    Huh? 83 octane??? Where do you find that?

    The lowest I've ever seen since they took the Lead out of gasoline was 87 octane.
    Here in FL, the lowest octane, Legal, fuel is E10, 87 octane.

    I buy my gas wherever I can, and I always get the E10 (87 octane) and my little Ivanka seems to love it. She runs just great and never 'knocks'.

    A man with experience is never at the mercy of a man with an opinion or an argument.

    Haha edited the octane number, my bad. Probably mixed up 87 and 93 in my head and made 83.

    Anyway, after a few drives the CEL cleared itself and went away. I'm guessing it was one knock and no subsequent ones..

    Could be bad gas or the start of a coil pack going bad. My 2011 Accent first started acting up around that mileage, coil finally died around 41k.

    I can make my 2013 Base throw that code at will. If I am sitting in stopped traffic and I punch it to get around someone but let off the gas immediately (other cars may be trying to get in the same lane) it will throw that exact code. It will clear after a few cycles or I reset it with the OBDII reader.
