Take your vehicle to AutoZone and have the engine light code analyzed
(free). They can provide a print-out with an explanation as well (free).
Have them reset the code, too.
Let us know what the fault code is and a summary of the print-out.

Like "instantly" after the oil change? the check engine light could by caused by a LOT of different reasons. recheck anything that could have been touched while doing a oil change, perhaps a sensor or something got disconnected. may by just a coincidence

What causes jumping and humming? 49,000 miles and not the transmission fluid or spark plugs. Please help!


run the fault codes and check for misfiring from injector problems
the humming noise could be from the tread of the tires in use and may be overcome by increasing the tire pressure by 5 psi
at 49.000miles Is the vehicle still under warranty and if it is take it to a service dealer and have a record made of the complaint
Just because a warranty period runs out doesn't mean that any fault recorded in the warranty period will not be fixed by the company after the warranty period expires

I just got my 2003 Cadillac deville..any everything was great..about a week after I got the car I took it Thur the car wash and out the blue the service engine light came on...what can that possibly...


A service engine light means it's time for an oil change. That light needs reset after the oil is changed. The computer senses the miles drove automatically and says "change my oil, it's been 3,000 miles" A CHECK engine light means it has to get a scan done. Change the oil, it will be fine. It is suppose to do that. Let me know if this helps you.

Engine oil light lit up and says Dist:3750mi


Nissan recommends changing the oil every 3750 miles. The computer is reminding you that you have driven 3860 miles without yet changing the oil.

Check engine light came on at 105,000 miles


The oil change wouldn't cause this problem. There are many emission sensors in the car that will make the engine light come ON. Best way to find out what's going on is to have an auto-parts store hook up a engine code reader and tell you what the code means. Most auto-part store will do this for free.

The oil light is blinking on a 98 honda accord and the oil is black when i check it....what does this mean?


Black oil needs to be changed immediately. It's possible that even if the oil level is full, it's so thin and worn that it's tripping your Oil Light due to lack of oil pressure.
