Default Service Engine Soon light on :(

Service Engine Soon light came on. Im in school right now so I drove it here with that light on. I tightened the gas cap but I've yet to drive it back home. Will it disappear then or should I be concerned? I'm still new to the Infiniti world. Car runs fine and I dont know what it could possibly be. It is time for an oil change so thats what I was thinking but I would love to hear from the pros. Thanks.

Is the bold necessary???



Could be one of many things. Best bet is to got to an autoparts store and have them read the code for you. See what the code is and go from there.

Autozone,advance auto and I know the pep boys around my house dose it.
Just go in there and ask if someone can come out and check your car cause the CEL is on.

+1. The code will tell you what's wrong. It may be something simple to fix.

Turns out it was the gas cap. Just tightened it and drove home and the light turned off. Thanks for everything guys!!!

the gas cap could be a coincidence.

whatever the fault was could have fixed itself or just not reoccured. the code is still stored in memory for so many cycles after it occurs, the exact number depends on the severity of the code.

I'd still have it read.

I'm not trying to high-jack your thread,
....... I have the same "service engine soon" .......
I have just changed my oil and filter, and also replaced
the spark plugs. The car has always run real strong, smooth idle, no mechanical issues. (battery cable removed during spark plug change)
soon after starting the car,
to check the oil. The service engine light came-on.
The car runs and pulls harder now then it did before. The old plugs were definitely worn and the gaps was worn to anywhere between 0.055" to 0.070".
new plugs were gapped to 0.044" per spec's.
any info would help ! Thanks...

If you guys want to know what the check engine light means you can buy Cipher(no pun intended flash)..its about $200, but it does alot of things, if you have a laptop to hook it up to. I honestly have only used it a little bit, but I'm generally pretty busy. Good purchase though..info @ uprev.com
