Default Uh oh, the check engine light is on....

I'm due for an oil change, but the "check oil" light usually comes on for that. It was really cold today and I drove my car around 200 miles in total today..... I really hope it'* nothing, I can't afford to even have my car looked at let alone get any problem fixed. I can barely afford the oil change. :(

My dad'* taking it to the dealership he works at in the parts department on Monday. Gonna get the oil changed, and the code. I hope the check engine light went on just because it was freezing cold last night, cause I can barely afford to get my oil changed (poor college kid)
