What service light ? service engine soon ? This light has nothing to do with oil , has to do with emissions > If the light is on there are codes stored in the engine computer . The codes need to be checked and then diagnosis can start . Yes it could be a real big problem ! Trouble Codes

"service" light came on my 2001 chev cavalier

That light will come on when the computer senses a fault, irregardless of typical maintenance. Take your car to your local auto parts superstore and have them scan the car for the fault code(s). This will help you choose a course of action. Or take it to your mechanic.

Had my car serviced recently and when I picked it up I noticed that the oil light comes up when I break or stop at the lights, what could be the problem?

the mechanic could have damaged the oil sensor / he did not plug the oil sensor correctly or he did not reset the oil change indicator after the service bring ur car back and let the mechanic who serviced ur car recheck the problem.

Service light with wrench is on, does that mean the oil has to be reset,and if so how to reset it

This could be for a variety of things. Has it been on since you did an oil change, or did it come on recently?

My 2000 cavalier was at the stop sign and the engine for no reason started racing to 3000 rpms nearly throwing me into traffic! WTF?!!! the wrench service light just came on yesterday and stalled out once

Sounds like a throttle position sensor sticking in a very dangerous position. The throttle position sensor does exactly what it sounds like. Senses the throttle position and sends it to the injectors, if the position sensor is sticking open it is a very dangerous situation. Get your vehicle to a mechanic and have them scan the check engine light and besure that is the issue before going any further, but that is your most likely answer, Good Luck!
