The CEL should go out after a couple of hours of driving... it has to do with the engine time to allow the electronics to recalibrate the system. So it's all about running the car to give it time to get back to normal.

I think you can also go to an Autozone and have them clear out your fault codes... not terribly positive on that one. I know a dealer can do it with a PST2 tool.
