I have a 97 Acura RL,engine light stays on even after O2 sensor is disconnected.I've changed out plugs& checked omhs on coils.Did a compression check on cylinders, 50-80.Do have oil on plugs,

To review, the check engine light will stay on until the problem is fixed and the code or codes are erased. And if the O2 sensor is disconnected the light will stay on for sure.
Do you have the trouble codes stored in the computer ?
FYI - the cylinders should have over 100psi of compression.

My 2001 VW Beetle is stalling. I had a tune up done and the mass air flow sensor and it is still happenning. The check engine light comes on and flashes then it stays on.

check engine light flashing means misfire and it staying on is probably because of your o2 sensor picking up all the unburnt fuel. check all the spark plugs again and make sure you didn't cross any wires. i'm pretty sure the wires were crossed or the spark plugs were fouled

Engine light stays on. checked engine oil , it was low. aded more oil. engine light still is running fine but engine light stays on

Some vehicles come on after they get alot of miles on them as routine maintenance may be required like a tune up new spark plugs , plug wires and distributor cap and rotor. You can unhook your battery terminal on some vehicles it will reset the light. you can try this first if the light comes back on get a tune up . or have a mechanic put it on his computer but I would do that last cause it can cost $20 -$60 depends on your mechanic.
