A check engine light or service engine soon just means you are not meeting emissions. definitely not a big deal.
go to autozone and have them do a free scan and get the fault codes.

Also, try this first - disconnect the battery for 1/2 hour and see if it turns the light off. Drive for 10 miles and it may run rough until it relearns your engine controls.
let us know results.

If the check engine light is on, you would need to get the trouble codes first. Not much the DIY can do without the equipment to check exhaust gas.

How do you check an 02 sensor on CTS 04 Cadillac 3.6L


If you remove the sensor from the exhaust pipe, measure the element if it a heated sensor. It should give a reading of 3 - 6 Ohms. Measure the voltage from the sensor wires and when heated with a blow lamp the reading should increase with heat. If it does, it is probably OK.

Service engine soon light came on, changed oil and of course changed filters checked gas cap all good any ideas


There are really too many things to list that can cause the service engine soon light to come on. I suggest you have your mechanic scan your vehicle to see what codes are present to cause the light to come on.

The "service engine soon" light


Hello,

A code P1092 for your vehicle says the fuel trims are trying to add fuel and the limit has been reached and this throws this code. More specifically Pre-Catalyst Fuel Trim Too Rich Bank 2. A rich condition could be caused by several things. You could have a faulty fuel pressure regulator, a leaking fuel injector or a clogged air filter. I would check the air filter to see if it needs replaced and have the code reset. If it comes back on then you will have to go to a technician and have them pull the actual BMW fault code with their scanner.
Regards, Tony

1998 nissan altima dashboard display engine service soon


Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

The service engine soon light comes on when a fault is detected in the emission system. The service engine soon light is the same thing as a check engine light. A scan tool will be needed to get the code for the failure, so the proper repairs can be made.

Thanks Jay!

The service engine soon light would have nothing to do with the oil or the coolant. There are many things that can cause the SES to come on, and some of them will cause the traction off light (TRAC OFF) or similar to come on because the traction has been dissabled. You will need to have the check engine light codes scanned. There will be trouble codes stored in the computer. From there the problem would need to be diagnosed, problem repaired, then codes cleared. Here is site with a list of some typical trouvble codes......

Check Engine Light


ERG will cause lower fuel milage to begin with but can result in excessive carbon build up in intake causing multiple sensors to malfuction.

I recommend that you get it fixed as soon as humanly (within a single mom's income) possible and when you do, you might consider an upper intake cleaning. It will help get rid of all the excess carbon
