Based on what you have experienced, it could be that the vehicle went into "limp mode" to prevent any serious damage to the vehicle. Depending on what the check engine light tells you what is wrong, is how you can determine the cost of repair. Generally speaking, it could be anywhere from 200-850.00. Depending what it says is wrong and depending on what part needs replacement. Some parts can be quite expensive.
