Update On Engine Hiccup/CEL

I went to start the vehicle to run down to the auto parts just a few minutes ago. The CEL immediately went off. Car ran the usual wonderful, and I drove to the auto parts. The very knowledgeable manager there said he couldn't check the codes since the CEL was off, and that he could not clear the codes even if he found a malfunction code. He says he cannot access a history of malfunctions. As it turns out Rico owns a '95 S600 in white/tan w/ 107K.

So I get home, and HUM had sent an email, informing me that it detected a code, P0100, MAF sensor with the CEL lamp. It didn't detect the CEL/code till I started the car today.

I think I better check my air filter. I have a funny feeling that it may be dirty, since I never checked it since purchase.
