Sounds like its due for a tune-up.

Had a tune up at 105000

The check engine light concerns me, its not staying on, and it is not flashing. There may or may not be a trouble code set. A flashing check engine light indicates a miss fire and can damage the catalytic converter. It wouldn't hurt to have the vehicle scanned to see if there are any trouble codes. The Mass Air Flow Sensor may need to be cleaned, and the air filter should be checked.
