The actual problem code will be stored in the computer as long as the battery is good, but whatever tripped it has probably not happened again, and as long as it has no new problems, the engine light will reset itself after you turn the key on and off so many times. For example, the truck got to hot, and tripped the engine light. After it cooled down you could cycle the key on-off-on-off 6 times and reset the computer. The problem is this does not fix the original problem, the over heating. Was it caused by a bad thermostat? A new one is $5, an overheated motor can warp the heads, ruining the $3,500 motor. I would have the truck hooked up to a computer, a good mechanic will tell you if it is something that needs fixed right away.

Car won't stay cranked after started


If the Service Engine Soon Light is on continuously there is a serious problem with one of the systems of your engine. Have it checked as soon as possible. Unfortunately, it could leave you stranded which will be very inconvenient.

Service Engine Light staying On


Alot of times a voltage drop to the O2 Sensor can cause your check engine light to come on. Even tho the O2 sensor is wrong fine.

Engine light is on.


Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the Check Engine or Service Engine Soon lights to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. Not fluid related, but could be a small problem that's easy to fix now. Even a loose gas cap can turn the light on. Have a code scan, that's the starting point.
