1998 Saturn SL Service Engine Soon Light is on

Last week the service engine light came on. I changed the spark plugs, changed the air filter, got the oil changed and the fluids checked even checked the gas cap to make sure it was on right...but the light is still on. Car is running great...not skipping, stalling....nothing all is well. Any suggestions on why. And as a side note....we had a Chevy Beretta...did the same thing...and nothing was wrong with the car..the light just stayed on.

Try clearing the computer code. Take the positive and negative off the battery, let it sit for 15 to 30 mins then put the cables back on the battery. That will reset the computer then see what happens. I had a similiar problem that when I got above a certain RPM I would get a mis-fire in my 2 and 4 cyclinders. Just FYI

Since your light is on, you need to take it to Autozone to have it scanned. There are many reasons that can cause a check engine light to come on, so it will need scanned. They will do it for free and they can tell you what is wrong with your car. Other part stores offer similar services.

The Service Engine Soon light has illuminated because the computer has detected a problem with a sensor, actuator, or a system that it monitors. There are literally hundreds of codes and thousands of possibilities.

The first step is to have the computer scanned to see what codes are present. Once you know what codes are present you'll have a much better idea of what is wrong and what needs to be repaired.

Post the codes here and I'll be happy to help you further if I can.

Service engine soon; code to engine running too lean...


Yes, it makes sence. I have a 1998 Saturn SL too, and I had to replace the fuel pressure regulater on it. I also had the light go on every once in a while. I asked a guy at saturn, and he said that there was a sencer on the engine that is goes bad after awile. The problem was that it was made of plastic and it would crack, but now they make them out of metal. I don't remember what the sencer is called, but ask a guy at the saturn parts window, and ask him if he knows what the secser is called, he should know.
