Service Engine Light

I have a 2000 - but my book shows two different ways the light may look - one way means you better get to the auto mechanic soon - the other means it's detecting something that may be bad - one problem - gas cap not sealing well enough - other somekind of emission detection chip if I remember right - anyways - might detecter was defective and fell under warranty - thank goodness - but check your book and check your light - check your gas cap the seal may be worn out - other wise check with your mechanic.

Take it to Autozone (or some other parts stores or repair shops) and have them read the error codes.

Re: '96 Sable, SERVICE ENGINE SOON light?

often the oxegen sensor is gone in a car that old there are two of them. I don't advise it but I have a 96 sable and once it was the gas cap and then later it went on and that was a year ago or so I just get less gas milage and the car idles lower.

When my 96 sable reached about 100k miles the check engine light came up and i started having problems keeping the car cool in the summer. After i hit 133k miles it overheated and i realized my water pump and thermostat were shot. I changed my water pump and my sable started working fine and the check engine light disappeared
