Why is it showing an engine light

I'm not clear on you mean by "It started showing insp then ", but a check engine light indicates , in a very general sense, that some component or part of the vehicle's operating system is faulty. Have the vehicle scanned at Auto Zone or Advance Auto for trouble codes, which will further identify the problem.

Engine light showing

The check engine light is telling the driver the engine computer has found a problem with the performance or emissions. You would need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed.

A engine symbol with a wrench attached continues to appear on the dash of my 2006 chevy equinox

I know of no such warning light on the 2006 Chevy Equinox that shows a wrench with an engine. The wrench with an oil can beside it means that there is scheduled maintenance required as listed in your owner's manual. You will see this when it it time to change the oil. The light that shows an engine is the Check Engine light and comes on when there is a problem with the emissions system. It requires that the ECU be scanned with a scan tool to retrieve the code that has been set. A trained professional will use this code to repair the problem.

Engine light and emmisions worshop on dash

You will need to have another code scan done. A faulty glow plug will certainly show up on a scan, but should NOT bring on the engine MIL light. Erase all faults showing at present. This should extinguish the engine light. Thin start and stop engine a number of times until the light comes back on. This will re boot on-board computer. Do another scan and the fault should show up. If possible do a live reading, paying close attention to the (oxygen sensors) lambda units
Best of luck

"check engine" light flashing

Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for fault codes. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. The check engine light is to alert you that the computer has identified a fault in one of the car's systems. Getting the codes will show what the computer noted, so a problem/potential problem can be addressed. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Engine light is on

Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for any fault codes. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. The light comes on when the computer has noted a fault in one of the vehicle's systems. Getting the codes will show what faults the computer has identified. If it is an inadvertent light, it can be reset after the scan. Hope this helped and best wishes.
