Check engine light came on during mild highway cruising (steady 40mph). Code diagnosed as exceeding allowable emissions. Could not locate source of problem. Check engine light reset, and told to return if it re-appeared.
Check engine light appeared again. Engine light disappeared on route to shop. Told no time was available to check, and appointment booked for November 12th. Appointment on November 12th discovered it was the same code for excess emissions again.
Engine light appeared again, assuming for excess emissions. New appointment booked for December fourth. Expect no positive outcome again.
Final diagnosis is a bad catalytic converter. Appointment booked for January. Until then intermittent check engine light is still present.
New catalytic converter installed. Fuel economy worse afterwards.
Violent bee-like vibration droning in and out at highway speeds, car unbearable to drive for more than an hour at a time. Lots of makeshift bushings added to the air intake system to dampen, has mostly resolved the issue.
