Question type: Maintenance & Repair

should my check engine light come on briefly when
I start my truck then go off? I don't see it come on
at all. Just wondering if I need to replace it, not sure
how to replace it either.

Yes it will be on briefly during a startup system check but it should go out and stay out when the engine is running. If the light ever does come on while the engine is running then it is time to have the codes pulled to find out what component or circuit has failed.

easy to replace? is it a bulb or led setup?

year 2000 will still be a bulb. Not too bad of a job, you will have to remove the instrument cluster and replace the lamp from the back side.

    After going through a car wash on my way home my check engine light came on. The truck just hit 149900 miles. Could the mileage be the reason it came on. The truck seems to be running fine.
