Borrow, rent or buy one of the newer OBD2 code scanners. It will allow you to read and clear codes. However, even if you clear a code, the light will come back on if something is still failing. The advantage to having the code scanner is that it will TELL you what's wrong.

Why would your 2004 Sunfire be over revving?

your sunfire is revving if the idle is set to high, or when adjusted. the idle is high also when the engine needs to warm up in cold weather. there is also the possibility that the engine temp sensor needs to be replaced, for it is not relaying proper heat temp. the light on your dash may show you engine temp, check this. if unable to do this yourself, you may need your cars manual.
