Replace the fuel filter. The new gasolines with ethanol tend to lloosen any crud in the gas tank, which then plugs the filter. When the engine stalls, the crud falls away, and it will run again until it plugs up again.

Hi Aslanko, I would suggest taking the vehicle for a diagnostic scan. Even though no fault code has illuminated the engine check light, it has probably recorded one in the memory and maybe it will pin point the problem. Regards John

Service engine soon light comes on 2002 sedan deville. Diagnostics indicate transmission and torgue converter. The transmission runs perfectly and the transmission is new from the factory June 2008. About...

In short, yes they are doing this to generate business.
They also make diagnostics difficult, so we have to take them back for a "plug in" for a high fee.
I have a Peugeot with the same deal & it stinks.

It could be set within the engine management system to time out after a while if you do your own servicing.

Buy an OBD II reader that will connect to your vehicle that should be able to reset this - and tell you of any real problems.

There are many makers of these - so make sure it will work for your make and model, and that it can reset engine lights.

Service engine soon light comes on my 2002 Buick Century that only has 54000 miles. What could this mean? Nothing seems wrong with the car. It is oiled regularly.

the service engine light means that the computer has detected that there is something wrong. it doesn't mean that it is anything serious. it could be something very simple. if you want to find out what it is exactly and avoid repair shop costs, take it to auto zone or another parts store. most of them have scanners that they will hook up and tell you why the light is on without charge.
