Take it to your local auto parts store and ask them to read the code. They can tell you what the problem is and what part you will need. It may not end after replacing one part though, as sometimes several codes are set and it may requirem multiple part replacements. emmissions related

Just had my 2003 Alero tuned up with new spark plugs and cables also oil changed. Today it idled really high by itself and then the service engine soon light came on. What is the problem?

Take your car to an Autozone or equivelant that will check your check engine light for free. They'll give you a print out with a # on it refering to what's wrong. Let me know what that code is.

Only one of the two service engine lights stay on on our 2003 Alero. Any idea way this is happening?

Take it to a place like Autozone, they'll check it for free. They will hook their code reader up to it, under the dash. Let us know what code pops up.
