Service Engine came up and disappeared next day. WHY???

Hi all
Yesterday I was driving from LA to Vegas mostly on 6st gear, on approximately 200th miles service engine came on, so I was worried, but dealers were closed, so I have to wait till tomorrow morning to take it for check! Today when I started the car in the morning, there was no service light??? Anybody knows what's going on? One more thing before I started the engine I've checked the oil, belts everything seemed fine!!!

Help needed if anyone experienced something similar!!!

Thanks in advance.

It could be many things. Go to autozone and have your codes checked...the event should be logged in the cars computer. I've had this happen a few times in more than one e46. If it went away the next day, maybe it's nothing serious...but don't hold me to that. Good luck and tell us what codes popped up!

I get a check engine light that comes and goes too.

Codes:
lean banks, and misfires.

New MAF, Crank Sensors, Plugs, Boots(no intake leaks), O2 sim(did it before the sim too, headers coming soon anyway)

It does it whenever the hell it wants to.
