Default Engine light

The engine light on my 2001 9-5 SE v6 turned on today. However i havent felt any difference in driving since it turned on. The engine light turned on about 4 weeks ago but it turned off after a day. I called my mechanic and he said if it turned off i shouldnt worry about it. Any suggestions?

Did you pull a code from the OBDII port under the dash? That code will tell you a lot.

The same thing happened to me this weekend, then it turned off, now it is on again.

I pulled a P0133 code out of it from the first time it came on and did a search on here for the fixes.

I also read the owner's manual and it said that the engine light may come on if you drive in the fuel reserve for a long time or if the gas cap is not on tightly enough.

Do not ignore the CEL. It tells you that something is not right with the engine. Read the codes and rectify the situation. If could be a small issue that can be rectify easily and less expensive rather than hoping for it to clear by itself.

Rather than the issues accumulate and becomes a more costly repair
