Check Engine light

Howdy all,
I'm new here. Thanks in advance for all the welcomes, etc., etc.

Now, my question:

I have a 1997 Ford Escort 5 speed (US spec). On Saturday, I changed the oil along with the air filter. When I put the boot back on over the new air filter, it was very difficult. So difficult, in fact, that the two tabs that are supposed to go into the clamp broke off. I figured, "no big deal" since the clamp still sinched down nice and tight on the boot and made a solid seal all around. But, when I drove it for the first time since then, the engine light came on as soon as the car started.

I already checked under the car for oil leaks (none.) I'm pretty sure it's something to do with the air filter. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for the welcomes? Oh, that would happen in the "Introduce Yourself" section which should be the first stop for all new members, especially when those new members want help.

I think I now have a full grasp of the term "etard". :banghead:

I can't believe I let you lick my ass with that dirty mouth. I'll have to cut both you and your momma off now.



BTW, if you joined this forum just to type this response (apparently so), you really need to get a life.

Check the MAF sensor wire on the air cleaner you might have pulled it out while changing the filter.
