Lets see I have a 2005 zx3, I bought it used with 60000 and now has a little over 65,000. This morning after starting the car and leaving it running to let the car to warm up, I came back out to see the check engine light on. The car sounds normal. I had the oil changed 2 days ago with Mobile 1 5w-20 Full synthetic and Mobile 1 oil filter. I checked the oil and it looks like they may have put a little more than the 4.88 quarts. Could this cause the check engine light to come on? Or could it be something else?

Isnt oil level 4.5 qts? Do you have 20 or 23? When my car hit 05 zx3 hit around 62k i threw a check engine light and it was because my camshaft sensor was dirty. Like ramble said, get the code read. Autozone usually does it for free.

There could be a couple of hard to track items that could cause that, but one common one, the gas cap. Try getting the code reset, and making sure the gas cap is fully sealed. If it comes back, then you will need to do more digging.
