Each one is there because someone tried to sue a company because they were not warned to:
On a chain saw: "Do not try to stop chain with your hand or any body part"
Any body part????

On Washer AND Dryer: "DO NOT put any person in this washer/dryer"

On a curling iron: "For external use only!"

From adsm08: "DO NOT shoot foot to get DTC codes"
Oh the wonderfully hilarious misquotes attributed to me over the years. I wish I had them all written down somewhere. I could publish a book.

We were just having some fun.
Sometimes people here do help others, but having fun is important too.

Yes, get the code, or codes, and start a new thread for some actual help

Default Suggestion..

I would get the computer read, but common problems that will indicate a engine check light would be emissions control problems that dont really effect the drive. TOP ideas would be EGR problem (carbon build up in intake manifold, easy, clean it) 02 sensors before and after your cat, mass airflow sensor, idle air control valve, evap sensor purge valve...most likely some type of sensor...go to autozone or wherever and get it read for free

I think 1995 is OBD 1. my 94' is OBD 1, and is a pain in the rear trying to figure out the codes without having a shop lend a scanner...no one has them.

try doing the engine light blinking test to figure the codes.

mine throws the light every now and then as well, but I feel like mines due to the 02 sensor.
