Default VG30E Check Engine Light

Sup IN! Haven't been on in awhile, I think I said before, I made a move to Colorado for school. Going to school for body work and fabrication!

Anyway, recently my check engine light has been coming on. But it only comes on for like a minute or two, then turns off.. Then comes back on a little bit later. Just on and off. Nothing seems wrong, I know i need an oil change, but that can't be the problem. It is the V6, Im just not sure what to look for. I'm leaning towards some sort of sensor (maybe 02) because it has been idling at about 700 RPMs.

Any input is much appreciated. Thanks guys!

Best I cn say is to check your codes. Its sometimes a PITA but can save you a ton of money and time.

CEL typically means there is an O2 sensor issue. Wiring could be bad or the sensor could be going out.
