Why are ets and engine light on in 98 Chevy cavalier

No, only a problem that effects emissions will set the check engine light.

If it is easy, your gas cap is not on correctly.

Possibly. The check engin light (aka idiot light) is a 'catchall' indicator that something is wrong in the engine compartment, especially since the tranny is hooked up to the engine.

Yes... the "Check Gauges" light will light.

you can take it to auto zone or advance auto parts stores, and they will put the scanner on it for free.

1. To reset the check engine light on your Chevy Cavalier, this is what you have to do. First, open the hood to the car, then turn the retaining nut on the battery’s negative cable clamps counterclockwise. Remove the cable clamp off the negative battery terminal by sliding it. Leave it unconnected for 5 minutes and then reconnect. Turn the ignition on and the check engine light will reset itself by blinking a few times and then shutting off.

Have a look here;

Take off the + on battery for 10 sec that should clear the code.

disconnect the negative battery cable for 30 seconds and hook it back up.

The check engine light cannot be retrieved on a 1990 Cavalier unless a problem develops with the engine. The engine can be checked for errors, though, by using a tester that is plugged into the vehicle's computer.

What's wrong with my 2003 Chevy Cavalier if the check engine lights on and a friends computer said "misfire cylinder 4 "? It studders also. thanks Dawn

I have a 2002 caviler with the check engine light on .I have had it reset several time but will come back on within one week,

This information can be found in your owner's manual. Don't have one, get one. Dealer or salvage yard is a source.

Really have to know what year the car is because these problems vary from year to year.

You can either bring it in to a Chevy dealer or use a programmer/tuner to reset the check engine light.

There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.

If the check engine light is blinking that means an engine cylinder misfire has been detected

check engine light codes can be checked at a local advanced auto or auto parts store. it needs to be hooked to a diag machine. if you're looking for the plug, it -should- be under the lip before your pedals, beneath the steering wheel.

The check engine light (service engine soon) comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle.

yea it means your either overheating or running out of gas
