Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. I see that you have been waiting a while for a response. I apologize for the delay
If the car is driving OK, you probably have an emission issue going on (loose gas cap, bad emission sensor, etc). As long as it is running ok, accelerating and braking OK, I would not think you will have a problem driving 60 miles tomorrow.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reply
If not,
Thanks for choosing Just Answer. It was a pleasure to assist you today. I trust my input to your request is satisfactory to you and meets your expectations.
