I have a 1989 318i (euro Specs) and everyday the check engine light comes up, some times it goes away and some times it stays on. How can I check what's wrong with it? How can I get a code? Thanks for the help.

BMW newbie.

As I stated in the other post this is most often caused by an O2 sensor that is going bad.
