C-Class Check Engine Light

I have a 2006 C230 Sport (manual transmission). I just had "Service B" completed a week ago, and my mechanic said my car was in great shape. A few days later my car hit 40,000 miles. A couple days after that I noticed my check engine light was on (not sure exactly when it went on though). Is this simply because it passed 40,000 miles? I'd hate to take it back in again so soon.

I'd take it back to your mechanic and have him pull the diagnostic trouble codes. 40,000 miles has nothing to do with it.

First you need to get a diagnostic check from the check engine light, you need to get an OBD-ll code reader to tell you what the code/fault is and we can go from there.
