Welcome to just answer and allowing me to assist you. well if the engine light is on we need to retrieve the stored trouble code so i can proceed to diagnose the problem, by the sounds of it with just this info I WOULD THINK MAYBE THE SPEED SENOR . But that's guessing without a code. Can you get and use a code reader? tHE ENGINE LIGHT INDICATES YOU HAVE A TROUBLE CODE STORED IN THE VEHICLE'S ecu THAT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED.If you require further assistance I'll be happy to do so.

THAT WOULD BE GOOD THEN i CAN PROCEED TO HELP AND DIAGNOSE THE PROBLEM . Just log back on when you acquire the code and we can continue from there. Cheers.
