Default 2001 Accord CEL

I am the original owner (DX w A/T) and have always maintained the car well. I had a CEL come on in January at 107K and there was 2 codes. One was 1739 and the other I can't recall but it was a 'random misfire' or some such thing. The mechanic said it needed an A/T sensor and a tune-up. I had him replace the sensor and I did the tune-up myself. I used a name brand (non-Honda) cap, rotor, wires and NGK plugs.
Yesterday the CEL came back on but went off on its own after driving about 10 miles. The mechanic tells me it's probably another 'random misfire' and that these cars are "sensitive to non-Honda parts".
Could using non-Honda parts have caused this temporary CEL? The car seems to be running fine...should I just forget about it or see if the code is stored?
My friend has 173K on her 02' Accord and feels that Honda CELs seem to be very sensitive as they accumulate this true?
