Well I was drag racing a friend at a stoplight and just punched it. Just messing around after school.

Anyway I'm not sure exactly when but as I was accelerating I noticed my check engine light was on this. I don't think this had been on when I started the car a few minutes previous but it is possible. I know it wasn't on in the morning. Anyway the light came on. I finished driving home and checked my gas cap and it still was on. Car acted completely fine, no weird sounds or bogging down, high revs, anything. Completely normal.

About an hour later I left home and the light was still on, then about 4 minutes of driving later it was off and has stayed off since (1 other short trip since).

Should I be worried or was it just a fluke?

Thanks.

Never a fluke. But conditions may have caused it to come on. If you are concerned it will be in history of your ECM. If the problem doesn't come back after so many startups, the code will be erased from history.

Sometimes just a drop of water in the fuel line will do this. Once water goes through everything goes back to normal.
