    I have a 98 saturn sl2 1.9 dohc. My service light keeps coming on and going
    off... While one time I start the car it is on then I shut it off and start
    it up again it will not come on..This is not the service engine soon light...
    Is this setup only for saturn b/c I have not seen it before and can I hook up
    a scanner and see why this light comes on..
    thanks

  2. Did they have the oil change warning lights in 98? If so, at the last
    oil change it might not have been reset.

    The service engine light can mean that the computer is generating a fault
    code.

    Service light, but not the service engine soon light?

    You might want to get the car to a mechanic, imho.

    later,

    Get the code read free at Autozone. You do not indicate mileage or
    maintenance history. EGR valve replacement (simple fix) is a common issue
    with this vehicle at 80-120K miles.

    Post what you learn to benefit others.

  6. This not able to be read from a cheap ass scanner such as actron like
    autozone uses to scan..The car has 63000 miles on it..Has a slight vibration
    at idle sometimes..
