Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you need to diagnosed and repaired it. The list of possible codes number in the hundreds. The code itself doesn't tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, or what engine parameter is out of normal range. You or a technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint cause and the proper repair. Even if you reset the light, if the underlying problem is not addressed it will come back on.

Emission devices in vehicles sold in the US are covered for 8 years. This is federal law. Talk to the service manager at your local dealer. A misfire will cause emissions to go up so it should be covered.

The only way to determine what is wrong and what it will cost to fix is to scan for codes that triggered the light to go on. The oil change should not have anything to do with the light (just check the oil to make sure they filled it to the proper level.) If oil level is ok, you can drive it, but have it checked soon because it could cause other problems if ignored for too long. Go to a parts store, most offer free checks of check engine light. They will plug a hand held scan tool into the PT's diagnostic port, and 'read' codes stored on the cars computer. These codes 'trigger' the check engine light to go on. They can then tell you the code#'s, what they mean, and how to fix the problem. If at that point you have any questions, post them and the code #'s here.
