  • Sometimes "Check Engine" means "I think you need a 30,000 mile check ... and don't know you had one just before the trip" and sometimes it means "I'm broken but you don't know it yet".

    If the car is new enough, you can buy a "code reader" [canadiandriver.com] at NAPA, WalMart, etc to plug into the engine computer, which will display the current status #'s which you can look up in the handy booklet supplied with the cheap code reader, or will scroll on the semi-pro model.

    Even the Iowa Corn [iowacorn.org] lobby admits that fuel filter clogs are possible (when ethanol is first used on older cars) and vapor lock on hot days, but they claim it's "mostly eliminated".

    Re Trains, please finish paragraph ...

    I had an O-gauge Lionel many decades ago. (I must admit my layout was ugly -- it was operational not modelling.) Since then I've done some modelling for gaming purposes, lots of fun. I read both model train and railfan magazines, but am otherwise currently in remission. I remember the Rocky Mountains with fondness, and would love to take a train ride through them.

    Good luck!
