Service Engine Soon Light

I have a 2001 Ford F-250, 7.3 liter Diesel, the Service Engine Soon light has recently came on. I had the oil changed and just installed a new gas cap. I started the engine 3-4 times and drove it around the block. The light is still on...any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Thanks,

Engine light could mean many thing. There's about a 100 things that can make the light go on.
Best thing to do is go to an autoparts store and have them scan for the trouble code from the on board computer. Many autoparts store will do this for free. They should tell you what the trouble code means and you can start from there.

Have the codes read. Without the codes it's just a guessing game. That code will point you in the right direction or even tell you exactly what's going on

The service engine soon light will not go out and oil has just been changed.


The service engine soon light and change oil indicator are 2 different things. The change oil indicator in the information center is reset by pushing the gas peddle all the way to the floor and letting it up all the way with the key in the run position with the engine off.
The service engine soon is a tell tail light letting you know that there is a problem with the way the engine is running. It has nothing to do with preventive maintenance.

My change oil light never goes off even though I had it changed and now my service vehicle soon light is on even though its been running fine


The change oil light needs to be reset after each oil change...some shops are not knowledgeable on how to do this...Your owners manual will instruct you how to reset the oil change light...The service engine soon is a catch all for low fluids and other needs...Be sure to check your oil level again...to clear the service engine soon light, you can disconnect either battery cable for 15 minutes then reconnect...if the service engine stays on...then you need to have your Grand Am checked...Auto Zone does a free diagnostic of check engine light codes...:)

2004 Ford F-250 6.0 liter diesel loosing coolant


i'm getting "internal control module keep alive memory?" for fault p0603. which i think has nothing to do with using coolant. i assume you're finding no leaks, so it's leaking somewhere you can't see. does it smell of antifreeze in the interior? is the carpet wet? the heater core might be leaking into the interior. there could be a slow leak on the top of the engine and it's boiling away before it has a chance to pool. fill your reservoir fully. let the engine get hot. inspect for steam in the engine compartment.
