Service engine light wont go off!!!!!

I have a 1986 z28. Sometimes it would sputter cough and die when I go to start out but only when I begin to give it fuel to go. Then When I'd try to start it again it wouldnt start. But after awhile it will start again and will run great! We gave it a lube-up and it won't do it anymore but now I have overheating problems and at times it won't get going very quickly starting out. But it's been running great lately except that crazy orange service light won't go away.... what happened to my car? & Is there something wrong with it still? .... and it still overheats but a guy I know told me to open the window and turn on the heater and open the windows... it helps but kind of sux during these hot summer days

Re: Service engine light wont go off!!!!!

You need to take the car to a mechanic that can pull the codes for the check engine light first. Then from there you will have a base for the diagnosis. May all be tied into one thing wrong.
