Question about Cars & Trucks
It appears to me that your engine needs a new thermostat. It must be stuck open. It's supposed to stay mostly closed until your engine coolant temperature gets up to something like 190 degrees F... then it's supposed to keep it up to that temperature stopping or going...

First the "service engine soon" light is a manufacturer installed reminder for you to get an oil change or other pre-determined maintenance service done. It is different than the "check engine" light which indicates a sensor malfunction. Secondly, when the engine is cold the thermostat is closed and the antifreeze or coolant is not circulating. The cooling system is a closed system and the tank that the cap is on is not an overflow tank but rather an expansion tank. This tank allows for the expanding coolant that is now hot to leave the engine coolant jackets, that won't expand, into a tank that can expand slightly. When your engine got to normal operating temp., aka.. hot, the thermostat opened allowing coolant to circulate and fill the expansion tank probably over flowing with the cap off. This is a normal operation for your car.

most likely blower motor, or poss connection to motor. however, these vehicles are common for blower resistors as well and would not be a bad idea to replace at all.. i dont think they are that much $$.
