Do you happen to know what code was being stored and causing the check engine light to illuminate?
Ok, is this the turbo model or non turbo?
The oil can cause this. Here is the reason why. If the oil softens up the spark plug boot on the coil, you will get a misfire. From the sounds of it the car does have a misfire. Now normally you would get a code for the misfire IE P0302 would mean a #2 cylinder misfire. If that was one of the cylinders that had oil in it, then I would suspect it to be causing the issue. You would have to replace the valve cover gasket, and the ignition coil to solve the issue.
Now if you can get the code, I might be able to figure out which cylinder is misfiring and offer some guidance on repairing the issue, where all I can do at the moment is let you know it is possible your leaking oil is causing the issue.
