Does the CEL come on in a Camry when an oil change is needed?

Asked by Mar 16, 2018 at 09:08 AM about the 2003 Toyota Camry

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 03 Camry and I am just about due for an oil change. I am very on
time with my oil changes but I noticed today that the check engine light came
on. Does this happen when an oil change is due? It has never come on before
and I don't think there is a maintenance required light on my dash. Thanks!
