wondering with guestimates why my check engine light could have come on. I know I need an oil change. My SUV has been running fine there still aren't any tell tale signs for why it could have come on. Not over heating running fine. Not sure why

The oil has nothing to do with a CEL light. Change your oil and then have the Escape scanned for codes. Any local auto parts store will do this for free. Post the 4 digit code back here and we'll help. It could be anything. .
