If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.

A solid light can mean anything from a loose/faulty gas cap to a transmission issue.

This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain on. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.

In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially turn on.

I have the "Service Engine Soon" (SES) appearing


IF you are absolutely certain YOU know why the light is on ... and there is no other reason ... you can probably have this code cleared by someone with a SCAN tool ... expect to pay for the service ... and probably pay near what it will cost to repair the problem. When the mechanic clears the code, he or she will have to get enough money to "recover" when you come back in a few weeks and say HE or she DID IT AND NOW MY CAR WILL NOT WORK.

Please don't kill the messenger ... Thank you
