This is my first car and I've only had it for two and a half months. A storm came recently and it's been really cold. Sadly, my car is parked outside all the time and it goes through all the frigid temperatures. The other day while I was driving, my check engine light illuminated (not flashing). There was no surge or loss in power and the car still drives like normal. When I turn it on and let it idle, there is quite a lot of vibrations from the engine compartment. I have tried something that I believe could've caused the light to turn on. With this in mind, the gas cap doesn't click when I twist to lock it in. Instead, it goes for about two inches and resists. So I'm wondering if the gas cap not clicking is innovative "German Engineering" or the weather is warping it to break the seal? Also I'm wondering if I need to be worried about this CEL or if it's just temperature related. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
