I keep the maintenance up on my car however, while driving this evening the light came on and I'm on a tight budget but I need my car. With the engine light coming on it could be anything and know it should be checked out. Also, when I purchased my car it came with no owner's manual so I'm not sure what to do. Any assistance would be appreciated!

if its the maintence light then it will come on to let you know the emission system should be checked to make sure its working properly.if you take it to a shop they can reset the light for you as if there was a problem with the emission system then the check engine light would have come on and there would be a code set in the ecm for the circuit that the problem is in.its safe to drive this just make sure you get the light reset.
that light come on because its scheduale maintenance is due preset by the manufacturer to reset it on the dash where the speedo is black nob 1st press it put key on leave your finger on it the light will flash and after will turn off let me no and thanks for using fixya
The light comes on at fairly short intervals ... even to let you know that you need an oil change. The mileage at which it comes on will depend on when it was reset last time. Here's a link to Yahoo Answers to turn the light off yourself. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080305080020AA1XbGo
its either time for tuneup if haven't done one meaning oil change,spark plugs air filter,check ur fluids make sure their topped off, and or make sure ur gas cap is on tight. 80% of time its gas cap not on tight...
might be the maintenance reminder light....how to reset
1) Turn they key to the II position 2) Turn the key to the off position, and push and hold in the odometer reset button 3) Turn they key back to the II position, while still holding the button. 4) After about 10-15 seconds, the light should go off.
this car come with tree diferent engines the answer i'm going to give you is for a 1.7 engine sohc that codes means you have a leak on the evaporative system this system monitor the vapors from fuel tank this code some time might appear for filling the fuel tank with car runing i recomend you to clear code and make sure the fuel cap is not loose because there is a fuel pressure sensor in the tank and if the sensor don't read the right pressure then it will set the code
