Interesting...I've seen someone mention PATS being a possibility but they didn't explain how. I'll keep my eye on the check engine light each time I start, and when I have an issue, I'll see if it lit up.
Tomorrow AM I'm taking it in to a shop near work to get it looked at. Will post findings just in case it helps anyone else too.
Thanks for the reply.
