    Take the car to O'reilly's, etc and get the code scanned. Can't troubleshoot if you don't know what set the light.

    You won't have a Service engine soon(SES) light for a rear main seal. The SES light or also what some people refer to as OBD II(on board diagnostics) monitors fuel, ignition and emissions. Your SES light is a result of an issue with one of those 3 areas.

    All this is in your owners manual by the way
