It could be for many reasons. Since I haven't bought an OBDII scanner, yet, I take my Tahoe to an AutoZone. They will scan it for free and should be able to tell you the code number and what the problem is.

No, it is not a Chevy engine it is a General Motors engine. GM stopped the practice of each brand making their own engine years ago. All engines are just GM engines except for the Corvette which does have it's own engine.

Depends on the manufacture. On Chevy for instance, the engine Serial# will tell you where the engine was made, month, year, and vehicle it was installed in. Use Google to search for engine codes for your vehicle.

disconnect the battery for a few minutes

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.

I was told by a co-woker that if you disconnect the negative battery cable for about 20 minutes or so that will reset the service engine light.
