A: No u don't use codes. The service engine light comes on when the computer detects something is wrong or not working correctly. It could be many things or one thing, it could be major or minor.
Take it to auto zone, advance auto parts, o'riley's or just about any parts store. Tell them your service engine light is on and they will use a scan tool and pull the codes. That means they will tap into the computer and see what the codes are and the codes tell them what is wrong. They can then tell you what the problem(s) are and the fixes. They can also clear out the codes and turn off the light. That's all free so no reason not to do it. But it will only come back on as soon as the computer checks and finds a problem.

An OBD II code reader usually has a reset function if you want trouble codes erased. Trouble codes can also be erased by disconnecting
the battery or removing the main fuse fow a short time then putting it back- but before you do that make sure there are no security devices needing to be reset with a secret code. The trouble indicator light
will come on when there is a problem. Diagnose that before you assume there is just a light
coming on that doesn't mean anything. The light
means something is wrong. (answered by don r on July 16, 2009)
What other engine will work for a 2000 Oldsmobile Alero?
I need a new engine in my Alero. It has a 3400. It is a 6 cylinder. I want everything to be able to hook back up without any major rearranging. I need it to fit on the engine block/mount. I do not want to get another block/mount. What other year, make and model will work for my car?

A: The Pontiac Grand Am is it's sister. The engine should drop right in. Look for a 1999 or newer. There may have been some minor changes starting in 2002. There was a lot of these cars produced, I would think used engines would easily be available. (answered by doane_nut on October 23, 2009)
