mine light came on so I pulled over, opened the hood, checked the engine. Yup, it was still there. Shut the hood and drove away.

Most of the time it is emission related, did you fill your gas tank in the last day or so? Is the gas cap on tight? Thus, you should be okay to drive it for a while, certainly get it checked but I would not worry to much about it if everything seems to be running and working correctly.

You really only worry if the CEL light starts flashing, if it does that pull over and shut it off for a tow truck. Invest in a decent code reader and clearer, if you had one you would not be worried and be on here posting the question.

They are well worth the $80-100 bucks...

Agreed, I bought a code reader a year or so ago and honestly I'm glad I did. I may have only used it a couple times between my wife's jeep and mine, but as far as I'm concerned it has paid for itself already. No screwing around trying to get to Auto Zone while it's still open and waiting for the guy to come out and do it for you. But that is an option as well, I think they do it for free.

Getting the oil changed won't get the engine light to turn off, at least I find that extrermely unlikely. It's going to be a bad sensor or something.

Oxegan Sensor, or Dirty fuel filter. Start there!

my engine light came on as well, a day after I went through a bunch of mud and puddles and etc.. checked it out, and it was emmisions related. They said it is eaither catalytic converter, or oxygen sensor. So, it may be one o the two there. You could go by your local auto zone, or advanced auto parts, and they will check it out for you for free. Just my .02
