I recently had an oil change. A few hours after the oil change, the service engine soon light illumiinated. I took it back to the place where I had the oil change and they said they forgot to clean some area that they should have and perhaps the gunk was blockiing a sensor. The light then turned off. I drove for about a week with no problems, but then the light came on again. I thought it might be a gas cap issue because I had researched and that is a common problem. So, I made sure that the gas cap was tightened and I refilled my tank. I then drove for a day or two (just locally), hoping the light would turn off. Well, today my car briefly stalled and when I restarted it, the light was off! I don't know whether to be happy or concerned. Any help?

Light out always a good thing
I think its the cap and it take a few miles for it to clear
but if you have it scanned that will help to tell what was the problem
ECM will store why the code was on
