Hello and thank you for your question, My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today.
The check engine light comes on when the computer is seeing a system fault and when this happens the computer will set and store a fault code and or codes. In order to determine what is setting the code you are going to need to start with having the computer system scanned. Most auto part stores such as Auto Zone will run the scan for you at no charge. If you can get this done and post back with the code and or codes I can direct you in the correct repair.
