Re: check engine soon light

The only thing you can check yourself is the gas cap. If you find it loose,
tighten and wait a few drive cycles for the light to go away. Otherwise you
need the trouble codes read and the problem troubleshoot. Any competent shop
can do that; it doesn't have to be the dealer.

Many auto parts stores now will scan your codes for free. AutoZone does,
for sure. After you get the code/codes, you'll know what's setting the
light. Come back and give us the code/codes
