I have the check engine light flashing and the oil light is on, what's up?

The Check Engine and Oil light ccan come on when you need a service. You can stop by a dealer and they will "reset" the lights for you. If they come back on then you need a service. You can jump the lines yourself but I can't tell what year/model you drive.
