Yes, it's fast easy and free if you visit most major chain auto parts store. The parts clerk can check the code(s) from your vehicle and give you a printed definition of the code(s). This will help you by giving a list of possible issues that could be triggering your check engine light. It is better to catch problems as they occur so as not to risk further damage to the car. And, hey, you can't beat free :)

Yes you should. Most autoparts stores can do this for free. Get the code number and the description of the code. Let me know and we can go from there.

Does the check engine light come on, on the dashboard, when you turn on the ignition, before cranking? If the check engine light does not light up on the dash, then your ecu is bad and in need of repair. That would also explain why it's not giving any diagnostic codes.

Engine light is on

take your vehicle to either advance auto or auto zone, they can test your vehicle by dianostics which will give you a good idea of what the problem is, and also it is usually tested free of charge.

1988 olds cutlas ciera service engine light comes

Try taking the car to Autozone or similar business for a free scan of your computer (your car is a pre-OBD2 system and your mechanic may have a scanner that reads only post-'96 autos). The scan will usually only point to problem areas, not specific components. That's where the mechanic comes in with specific tests. Good luck!

the easiest solution is to have a dianostic test done at a shop you trust. it will tell you why the light came on. usually just a sensor will need to be replaced. but the test can be exspensive, $75-$150.
