there is a malfunction indicator light on my dash that is lit and i'm not sure what it is. it is on the upper right side, yellow color, and it appears to be a car with arrow pointing up at the wheels. i recently added oil and checked my spark plugs. any help as to what this light could be would be very appriciated.
thanks

thanks guys, i drove the car all weekend with no problems. the car developed a miss, i checked the plugs, one was fouled so i cleaned it and the car ran fine. i then decided to check the oil and found the dipstick to be dry. i checked it running and hot. last night i added 2 quarts of oil and started it and thats where i noticed the light come on for the first time. i will recheck any connections around the shocks i may have bumped off.

guys it smokes lightly and smells of oil out of the engine bay if i rev the engine up high (5-6k)rpms. oil is trickling out somewhere. Algar ferrari is doing an oil change on monday and they said they would look it over and let me know what they think. hopefully it is something i can do my self. if it is too serious, i will sell the car. do not want to get buried in service problems. thanks again for all the help guys.
