Hi, My name is Jay

What engine do you have? The 2.4 or 3.5?

Customer: replied 7 days ago.

i do not show any recalls pertaining to the engine replacement on this vehicle. Have you had the check engine light scanned to see what the codes are stored in computer?

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
No not yet,just happened on my way to work last night

You can go to the local parts store and they should be able to scan for codes for free to see what caused the light to come on. Make sure to write the codes down they get and then we can help you with diagnosis of that code.
