Asked by Danadean May 28, 2013 at 06:12 PM about the 1998 Subaru Impreza 4 Dr Outback Sport AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

would the need for an oil change cause the "check engine" light to come on? I just bought the car from a private party - had it checked out at the dealer...was told it was in great condition - not sure what this light is indicating...any ideas? 103K miles (timing belt has been replaced).

No on the oil change, it will be another sensor that is out of range. You and I will just be guessing what it is. Have the car scanned for the code/codes to pinpoint the area of concern. A scanner will run you $30 if you want to invest in one, or have one of your local autp parts stores scan the car for you.
