The engine light is on to alert you to the fact that a fault has occired in the electronics of the engine or emission control system, any time this ligfht is turned on a troulbe code is set n the cmputer memory, there are over 200 such codes, so the only thing to do is have the system tested for the trouble code(s) to determine which of the over 200 poss problems has occured.

Go to parts store and have them scan your OBDII, its free. and they will tell you what the code is and what it means and how to fix it. They will also be more than happy to sell you the part to fix it too.

Van starts hard, then runs fine, fan is loud, service engine liht on


This is all tied to the service engine soon light.

When the Check Engine light (or Service Engine Soon or small picture of an engine) is turned on, the systems computer control unit (called the PCM) has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system. When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different. There are about 200 possible system faults (the gas cap is just one of them) that turn the Check Engine light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen/Oriley and Autozone parts stores (USA only) do this testing for free.

Service Engine Soon Light comes on but doesn not stay on.


If your battery starts turns the engine over, it is doing it's job well. It sounds like your engine computer is not liking the cold engine. If it has been a while since a tune up, it would not hurt to go ahead and do it, but if it runs ok after it warms up, I sould not worry about it a whole lot. When the engine is cold, the egr valve and other things that are made to limit polution tend to stick and give the computer bad readings. A serious tune up may fix it, and I think should, but you MAY still be in the same boat! That does not FIX it for you, but should ease your mind on the light.
