The onboard computer has detected a problem.

If still under warranty (emission related, up to 50K by government mandate), take to dealer. If not sure, take it to autozone or other auto parts store and have them hookup computer and printout the error code.

NOTE: If fuel cap is not on tight, it will set an error code. Can take several days to reset after correcting the gas cap.

I change my transmission in 1997 honda civic freio I change the cvt to a manual transmission andengine check light stay on what could cause that to happen


Check engine lights report faults in engine AND gear box(auto). If you have changed from an auto to manual gear box then the sensor system for the gearbox is recording a massive fault with the gearbox that you have to check out. Talk wit an accredited auto electrician as to how to neutralise the system so that the light only checks out the engine.

Check engine light on just after 100K


a check engine light has nothing to do with oil, it is a warning that some part of the engine or emission control system electronic control systems has developed a fault, have the system tested to determine what that fault is, there will be a fault code stored in the powertrain control modules memory
