Default Check engine light

Does auto zone have the free engine check? I asked because i changed my valve cover gaskets and when i put everything back together the check engine light came on... I have no clue what ti would be... checked all the vacuum lines, and all the connections and still cant find out what it could be.... Thanks Nick

First..I'd check the evap on the front valve cover. You might have reversed the lines. And yes..they do.

okay I ran up to auto zone... car to seemed fine drove well.. my high idle i had never posted here went down after i replace the pcv valve and that but anyways... got to auto zone they ran a check and i have a misfire cyl. 6... got home and it started pouring raining outside so i couldnt check anything but first thing before i goto school tomorrow I am going to check all the wires to see if any are touching and what not. Then to reset the computer to make the light go away i have to take unhook the battery for 10 mins right? thanks Nick

On my '98, for some reason or other, it takes much longer. Sometimes I just leave it unhooked overnight (just in case your ten minutes doesn't work)
