C.E.L. came on after driving 250+ miles
What do i do guys. I drove in rain couple of days back, nothing happened, and this cool morning driving to work it suddenly came on. I had this Intake installed about 3 weeks ago and i have driven over 250 miles. I know its also time for an oil change...so i am not sure if its becoz of the oil or Intake. Any suggestions would be appreaciated.

Clean your MAF sensor.

don't forget that even after you identify and fix the problem you may have to disconnect your battery to reset the ecu. Otherwise, your CEL may not go off.

I gave up trying to get my Cel light off after my Intake was installed. Even toyota can't find a way to keep it off.

Damn guys I thought I was the only one with this CEL problem...My check engine light would usually go off after a few days but it has been on for the past week or so, so I just try not to pay attention to it anymore...Sometimes if I would twist the gas cap a little tighter than usual it would go off but not anymore...Oh well...
