That is an emissions problem warning light. It might go out after 4 or 5 trips if a temporary condition caused it (for example a loose gas cap or a bad tank of gas).

That is a pretty bad surge idle so I would guess it's not something like a coil or spark plug, and it's not due to the timing cover oil leak you mentioned in the video. It seems like the car is...

I would definitely try it first if I ever get the leak. Mainly for the time saved to perform the fix, not for the money saved.
