It should store whatever code its throwing in the computer. Take your car to an auto zone or a local parts store. They can plug in a code reader and most likely tell you what the problem is.

It sounds like it could be the o2 sensor or speed sensor depending on when the light is coming on. But you deffinitly need to have it scanned to find out for sure.
