Got my oil changed and now my 'check engine' light is on.

msroseJanuary 1, 2011

I got my oil changed on Thursday and ran several errands afterwards with no problem. When I started my car Friday morning, the "check engine" light came on. I ran several errands that day and each time I started the car, the light was still on. Is it just a big coincidence or could they have done something when I got my oil changed that would cause the light to come on?

*Is it just a big coincidence*

Probably. I'd check the gas cap for starters. I've heard a number of people say that their lights came on simply because it wasn't on tight enough.

You might tell the guys that changed the oil your story and see if they'd take a quick look to see if they did knock a wire or hose off.

Good luck.
