Answers :

Go to autozone and have them do a scan on your car this is a free service and may identify the problem
You have a stored trouble code(s). Your vehicle needs to be tested with a scantool to determine cause. If you dont understand what that means, please seek a qualified repairshop or technician who has the proper scan equipment. There are over 1300 different codes that vehicle has that can illuminate the service engine lamp, likely only 1 of them is yours...but you need to know which. DO NOT try and turn off the light! (If anyone says you can disconect the battery and turn it off, dont listen to that lunatic!) the light itself isnt dangerous, and it indicates that the code data is still stored and in memory available to a technician to help determine exact cause of the fault. If you erase the code and turn off the light with a battery disconnect, crucial diagnostic info could be lost that may turn a 10 minute diagnostic into 2 hours or longer...all of which you could reasonably expect to be billed for. Ge tthe car checked and the technican who checks it can turn the light off after repairs are completed.
