SOMETIMES a Lazy O2 sensor(oxygen sensor) will turn on a check engine & then go OFF - but SOMETIMES it will SET a Hard Code.U need 2 check the History of codes in the Computer It could be the Thermostat. I had a firebird that had the same problem. Turns out the thermostat was too cold. There is a problem that is affecting the emissions system. There are a multitude of possiblities as to why is comes on and goes off. Whatever is happening isn't consistent and until it is, I wouldn't worry about it. I would make sure that the car is tuned up however and other maintnence is current. See "What maintenance should an Owner do?"
