Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt
I don't know if this is a check engine light or not what does it mean. the car seems to be running fine. it came on after we came down our driveway that has been severly damaged by rain and it is extremely rough to drive down it
That is the check engine light, the internal computer has detected a malfunction in a system. could be just a quick fault and nothing is wrong, the light just need to be reset. Take it to pep boys or advance auto parts, they usually let you use a codescanner for free, which will reset the light. if the light returns, see your dealer for further diagnostics!
please rate the solution!

The information below was complied by me, it explains what causes the check engine light to come on and the process of finding the cause.
When the Check Engine light (or Service Engine Soon or small picture of an engine) is turned on, the systems computer control unit (called the PCM) has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system. When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different. There are about 200 possible system faults (the gas cap is just one of them) that turn the Check Engine light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen/Oriley and Autozone parts stores (USA only) do this testing for free.
