No, it shouldn't have anything to do with the inspection. You can have it checked for free at most parts stores. They will plug a scan tool into the cars diagnostic port, and can pull codes off the computer to determine why the light is on. They can provide info on what to do to correct the problem. If you still have questions, post the codes they find here w/ your questions.

How do I fix starting problems with my car?

I can think of a few thing's that could cause this , a mass air flow sensor, crankshaft position sensor , coolant temp sensor. If the check engine light comes on there should be a DTC - diagnostic trouble code stored in the PCM - engine computer ! I'd find a parts that will check for codes an go from there . unless you have a factory scan tool that will check engine data parameters !
Hard Start

DEFINITION: Engine cranks OK, but does not start for a long time. Does eventually run, or may start but immediately dies.

• Refer to Important Preliminary Checks Before Starting in Symptoms - Engine Controls .
• Search for bulletins.

• Inspect the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor for being shifted in value. Install the scan tool and compare the displayed engine coolant temperature with the intake air temperature on a cold engine. Check the resistance of the ECT sensor if the engine coolant temperature is not within ±3°C (5°F) of intake air temperature (IAT). Refer to Temperature Versus Resistance . If the ECT sensor resistance is not within the specification, refer to DTC P0117 or DTC P0118 .
• Inspect the mass air flow (MAF) sensor and connections.
• Inspect the operation of the idle air control (IAC) valve. Refer to Idle Air Control (IAC) System Diagnosis
• Using the scan tool, monitor the throttle position (TP) sensor voltage. The TP sensor voltage should be less than 0.9 volts with a closed throttle. If the TP sensor voltage is more than 0.9 volts, inspect the throttle body and accelerator cables for binding.
• Inspect for the proper operation of the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system. Refer to Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) System Description

Fuel System
• Inspect the operation of the fuel pump. The pump should turn ON for approximately 2 seconds when the ignition is turned ON. Refer to Fuel Pump Electrical Circuit Diagnosis
• Inspect for incorrect fuel pressure. Refer to Fuel System Diagnosis .
• Inspect the fuel injectors and related fuses. Refer to Fuel Injector Solenoid Coil Test , and Fuel Injector Balance Test with Tech 2 or Fuel Injector Balance Test with Special Tool .
• Test for fuel contamination. Refer to Alcohol/Contaminants-in-Fuel Diagnosis .

Ignition System
• Inspect the operation of crankshaft position (CKP) sensors A and B.
• Test for proper ignition voltage output using the J 26792 Spark Tester .
• Inspect for damaged ignition coils within the ignition coil module assemblies.
• Inspect for damaged or misaligned spark plug boots.
• Inspect for a missing or damaged ignition module ground spring.
• Inspect the spark plugs. Refer to Spark Plug Inspection .

Engine Mechanical
• Excessive oil in combustion chamber-leaking valve seals. Refer to Oil Consumption Diagnosis in Engine Mechanical 4.6L.
• Inspect for low cylinder compression. Refer to Engine Compression Test in Engine Mechanical 4.6L.
• Inspect the following for incorrect or damaged basic engine parts:
- Cylinder heads
- Camshaft and valve train components
- Pistons, and piston assemblies

Got a bad miss

The most common problem for this symptom, is a faulty cap and rotor. When was the last tune-up? There are other reasons for a bad miss though. You may have another ignition related issue. Run a compression test first, check the battery and the charging system, look for loose or damaged wiring in the engine compartment. From there you can inspect the ignition system, and the fuel system. If there is any additional information that you can think of, write back. Maybe you noticed a light on the gauge cluster that was never on or flashing before. Good luck.

Honda Odyssey engine suddenly dies while driving on HWY

This problem may take sometime to find. Please write back with specific vehicle information (year,engine size, mileage, maintenance history, recent repairs and anything else you can think of. A few suggestions to get started. The usual rule of thumb is if there is a drivability issue and the engine light is off then it is mechanical. Check the fuses and relays. Look for loose connections (fuses and relays should slide in with firm pressure). Also look for any signs of over heating. Inspect the fuses and relays for melted spots and corrosion. Check the performance of the ignition switch. It may be worn and loosing contact with related parts, affecting performance. It could be the fuel pump too. There are other suggestions but the other failures should turn the engine light on. I hope this helps but I would like to hear back from you. I feel like I could help more, if I knew more about your problem. Good luck.

2004 Grand Jeep Cheorkee: Check Engine Light code conflict

You need to inspect those parts. The two codes, in a way are related. But they happened in different seasons. These newer cars are picky about what is going on and the signals it receives. A scan-tool is needed to see or collect active data from that O2 sensor and see if it is bad.
If the thermostat is bad then replace it but I can't tell you if you need an O2 sensor. You can tell the service rep. about what you found, it cant hurt.

Check engine

maybe a bad wire to sending unit, or a bad sending unit, the engine light may be related to the gauge problem, go to autozone have them scan the computer if the code has to do with the fuel level sender, then check the wiring if its good then replace the fuelpump asm, the asembly will come complete with a sender for gauge,when replacing make sure baffle is not floating around in tank.

2001 pontiac sunfire abs and check engine light is on. brake fluid is full and the front brakes were just changed about a month ago.

I think these lights are not related. The ABS light means the ABS is not working, and has nothing to do with the brakes working. You can have brakes and not have the ABS part working. I don't think a bad ABS would turn on the check engine light, but it may.

1999 Porsche Boxster Check Engine Light

Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. I wouldn't think that the two issues are related. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Check Engine Light - 2000 Honda Accord

it could be that the air filter housing is worn and thats why they said you needed a new one what that means is that you are getting to much air into the engine and will cause check engine light to come on i would replace that and then see if it goes off and then if not go to a auto zone and they check the light and see what it is and then go from there
