Question about 2007 Dodge Caliber SXT Sport Hatchback
Engine was cold and I had to accelerate quickly, in doing so the engine management light came on. Could it be serious or just a re-set?
Just a reset, but check ur radiator just to make sure. Make sure u havnt lost fluid and make sure the reservoir isnt ovrflowing. ONLY DO THIS WHILE THE CAR IS COLD

When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.
