Default 75K Maintance on 2000 Acura TL

I bought the car without the owners manual. My check engine light came
on 150 miles before my 3k oil change. Is there anything that needs to
be done besides the oil?

Note: Bought with 69K, was Certified from Clair Acura in Massachusetts.


Any help is appreciated

If possible email me directly at andrew.morocco@gmail.com or post
here

Thankyou

That engine light is not a "maintenance reminder". Have your car
checked out.

There are two lights. If the one that came on is "maintenance required"
then it just thinks you need an oil change. If the actual "check engine"
light is on, you have some other problem.

You can get one on eBay.

See others' replies. Make sure you're identifying the light correctly.

If it's actually the MIL ("Check Engine light"), there is a problem
with the engine or its associated controls. Sometimes the MIL will
illuminate if there are transmission problems. You need to get a
garage to scan for the numeric codes that are set when the MIL
comes on.

Is the car still under St. Clair's warranty? If it's the MIL that's on,
then St. Clair owes you a check of the OBD-II system.

These auto groups exist because the wide range of hands-on experience and
interactive responses is the next step up from sites like automd.com. Automd
doesn't really have anything to offer the OP in this case.

I suggest going back to Clair Acrua and asking them for the owners manual.

If the car was properly certified it should have come with all the manuals
especially the owners manual.

My question would be is it a "Check Engine" or a "Service Required"
light?

If it is the "Service Required" Light, that has to be manually reset
after each oil change. On the trip odometer, just hold both the select
and reset buttons for a while as you start the car. That will reset that
timer.

I know because my dealer forgot to reset it once. Great.

There is a pocket in the left side wall of the trunk for the owner's
manuals. Have you checked to see if its in there?
