Check Engine Light + P200A code on new 2011 SX
Sooo, I got my car just under a month ago. At about 500 miles, the check engine light came on and it was over Memorial Day weekend so I had to wait until the Tuesday after to get it checked out at the dealership. Anyways, it came back with a P200A code for intake manifold runner performance issues. They ordered the part and told me that it should be in by the following Tuesday (today). Called in today, turns out the part is on backorder with no ETA.
Since the check engine light came on, I'm not sure if I'm being paranoid...but it feels like every now and then my car is super sluggish...
I asked the lady that was helping me, but she wasn't very clear. What exactly does it mean that there is intake manifold runner performance issues? I tried to Google it and search the forum to no avail... Annnnd, is it bad to be driving my car with this problem? She said that it wasn't a problem, but that if my car starts acting funny to call and she'll see about getting me another car to drive while they wait for the part.
What should I be looking out for? I love my car and I don't want to mess it up. I've only ever had one car before this, and it was used...so I'm trying to not do a bad job of taking care of it.
