I have the problem now of my engine light on. I was told that it was my first converter. The dealer said that It would cost me 2000.00 to get it fixed. Ia m shoping around to see. But, the cheapest price that I have found so far for the first converter is 500.00. Do not go to the dealer. They will charge you over 800.00 for it. Could be the Gas cap Mine was loose when the Check engine light came on.Once the condition clears it will take 30 starting cycles to clear saving money on the dealer clearing it. Also you might have a Pre-converter going out.(about $350) Or you might have on 02 sensor going out.(about $20)
