The check engine light is definately an emission control issue. Assuming that the light is not flashing. What all did they do at the emission place? I know down here in Tucson, AZ they pull the gas cap off and check to see if it holds pressure, if they dont put it back on properly it will turn on the check engine light. The check engine light can come on for hundreds of reasons. Your best bet is to run down to an Auto Zone and have them run a free scan on the code. Once this is donw write back with the code and I will decipher it for you.

Volvo s40 engine noise

you have to understand a service engine soon indicator is letting you know the engine is not running at peak performance and creating unexceptable amounts of emmisions. your engine runs peak at 14-7-1, 14 part air.7 part fuel, 1 combustion stroke, any different it triggers the lite. If your tapping is engine related ,say valve clearence valve.does not seat properly you lose compression on the stroke,improper burn thus the light... in short find the source of the tap and fix

97 Buick Lesabre, had emmisions test done (which it passed) as soon as leaving emmisions test check engine light came on. Any ideas what may have caused this?

Stop by any good parts store (Autozone, Advance, etc) and have them do a FREE OBII scan. It will read all your fault codes and more than likely light came on because of emission test. But have them read the faults and reset your light.

Wont pass emissions code p0118 check engine lite on dodge 1500 5.9l

This code indicates a high voltage from the ETC, the engine coolant temperature. Supposedly a high voltage means a low temperature. Try to disconnect/ reconnect the battery a few times; this should clear the code. If the code returns, it is most likely the sensor. This should have nothing to do with the emmisions. If that's the only code, then the emmisions problem could be catalytic converters, O2 sensors, fuel injectors, could need a tune up, etc... usually emissions problems have to do with poor fuel burn-off.

2000 toyota camry check engine light is on code P0128

if you are refuring to the yellow check engine light. thats an emmision control light, it's not related to
oil or water capacity. it has only to do with emmision control devices. if the light is on steady. bring it to your mechanic and have him or her pull codes from your on board computer as soon as possible. if the light is flashing bring it to them now. stop driving the car or damage will be done to your cars converter.
good luck chris
