Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
The check engine light comes on when the PCM (computer) sees a system fault and when this happens the computer will set and store a fault code and or codes. In order to determine why the light is coming on as well as the cause of the sputtering you are having we need to start with having the computer system scanned and the fault code and or codes retrieved. Most part store such as AutoZone will run the scan for you at no charge. If you can get this done and post back with the results I can direct you from there.
