I suspect the EGR got stuck closed, u will need to put around 30 miles on the car before the light will return if the problem is still present..

Scan the engine computer for trouble codes, and go from there. with the light on, there will be a code or more to follow. Some stores, like Autozone, will do code scans for free. If you get a lot of codes, first attend to those that indicate the problem you are having.

Engine out while driving.


sounds like a ground problem to me. if i understand you correctly, while driving the car the all the gauge needles sweep to full max and the vehicles dies, which lets the needles return to "home" and since the car isn't running anymore but key is still on the oil and battery light will come on.
i would suggest taking to a mechanic, just bear with them as these kind of problems can be hard to duplicate

My service engine soon light came on and was wondering what does that mean and what should i look for to fix?


The Service engine soon light comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.
