Thanks for posting

The first thing we usually ask when the CEL is on is for the diagnostic trouble codes.

Most autoparts stores like autozone, advance auto can help you get the codes from the computer at no charge, if you could do this and then let me know the code numbers I can have a specific answer for you where the problem may be and how to go about fixing it, please rely when you have that information.
