The service engine light is on; the engine sounds the same.

The problem just started and the light will not go off. Is there a re-set for it?

If you have an Auto Zone near you bring it there and they will run a diagnostic on it for free and give you the codes and explanations of what's wrong (if anything). My check engine light used to come on often until they explained the problem was that I was not putting the gas cap on correctly after putting gas in my car. If you live in a state that requires annual car inspections, they will know you had the light reset and, if there is a problem, give you a rejection sticker. Hope this helps.
