Service engine soon light

I have a 1998 Olds Intrigue with 100K miles on it. I have kept all the regular service up on it at recommended intervals, however, the "Service engine soon" light keeps coming back on. How do I turn it off without disabling it?

The MIL light AKA service engine soon light comes on to warn of a malfunction in the emission control system or a problem with electronic engine controls like fuel control, there will be one or more trouble codes stored in the PCM (powertrain control module) to show what system or sensor has an issue/problem, take the car to any Kragen Auto, Auto Zone or other chain parts store and they will test it for free, write down the trouble code or code's and post them back on this same thread for me to look at, then we will have some info on what to fix to get the light to go out, also have them reset the light when they test it, it will come back on in a few days, but maybe we can fix it before then, OK?

The new timing belt jumped


no it is not. (late answer) is this a double post?

all timing belts jump,
1: every 60k miles for most. ever read the service list.
some top quality belts go bad at 100k miles. so.....????

Honda uses an "interference" engine design.
do not skip this service, or the whole engine can grenade !!!
honda quote, pasted.
However, since these engines utilize an interference design, it is highly recommended to at least inspect the timing belt at 60,000 mile (96,000 km) intervals. It is an even better idea to replace the belt at these intervals. On 1990-94 models, Honda recommends the timing belt to be replaced at 90,000 mile (144,000 km) intervals. On 1995 models, the recommended interval is 60,000 miles (96,000 km).end quote.

and if the last guy put in a POS china belt, well, you are hosed.
no name belts are junk, never ever use one,
BTW i run Gates belts.

How often do you change spark plugs in 2002 olds intrigue


I believe the recommended is at 100K miles. I just changed mine on the Aurora at 216K miles and they were still working - so they last pretty long.

Service vehicle soon, anti-lock, trac off all on


You need a new wheel bearing, This also happened to my olds alero, make sure 2 jack up each tire 1 at a time and pull back and forth on them checking for play, once you have found the 1 that has play or wobbles that is the 1 that needs a new wheel bearing

1998 NIssan Frontier service engine soon light at 93,000 miles


that might be a funny coincidence if your buddy knows whats up then it just might be a sensor that would be my guess, check your fuses just to be safe.

Check and or replace your speed sensor if that does not work replace the instrument cluster - you can find one at almost any salvage yard.
