San Diego Mechanic

The check engine light came on in my insight and I need to get it checked out soon.

Any suggestions on good/reliable San Diego area mechanics or quick and easy at home tricks to figure out whats wrong. The dealer wants $80 to check it out? Is that a fair price if the other two options are not possible.

I don't notice anything wrong with the way the car runs, the gas milage is down but my city/stoplight driving has doubled the last few weeks as well.
I can't tell if anything is wrong with the exhaust. My gut leans toward oxygen sensor but i have no justification for it.

First, did you recently get gas? If you don't tighten the gas cap properly it will give you a check engine light. There are a lot of more advanced codes only the proper reader can read, but it's worth a shot to use some automotive parts stores free code reading service.
