Question about Cars & Trucks
The engine light came on before a couple of times but it always went away after i restarted my car.. this time its not going away. the car seems to be running fine other than the burning smell inside and the engine light problem..
Depending on the type of car, you might have oil leaking directly onto the exhaust system, which is dangerous as it could possibly ignite. I would take it back to the oil change place and have them double check the oil filter to make sure the seal isn't leaking. AutoZone or Advance Auto can hook a mini scan tool to the car and tell you why the light is on.

There is a reason that the light is on. You should check to see what code or codes you have and go from there.

You need to find out what is causing the MIL (or CEL). Take it to an AutoZone or O'Reilly's and get the codes read. WRITE THEM DOWN, and report them back here.
I've got a '03 Jeep Cherokee, and one of the main issues I have had is bad evaporative emissions hoses. Chrysler used the wrong rubber formulation.
But, the burning smell could be a different issue altogether from the CEL issue, or may be combined. You will need to locate the source of the smell, and we can help you further.
I will say that if your not very mechanically inclined, you may have trouble diagnosing and making the repairs.

Could be an air flow fault, check all your air pipes for holes or splits and also check the air flow meter and sensor. just clean them up before going any further.
Also check the earth lead from the battery to the slam panel, and to the gearbox make sure all the earths have a good contact to the car body.
