Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Justanswer. Thank you for your question and I will assist you with your concern.

The check engine light comes on when the computer system sees a system fault and when this happens the system will set and store a fault code and or codes. In order to know what is failing you are going to need to start with a system scan. Most auto part stores such as Auto Zone will do this scan for you at no charge. If you can get thins done and post back with the fault codes I can direct you in the correct repair.
