Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
Since your check engine light has come on the first thing that needs done here is to have the fault codes read out/checked to see what codes are set.This is done with a compatible scan tool that can plug in and communicate with all computers.Most shops and dealers of course can check the codes as well as diagnose and repair the fault.In allot of cases though you can get the fault codes read out at no cost to you at a local parts store like Auto Zone.If you can get the codes read out then post them here this will help me help on locating the possible fault.
I have seen issues with restricted exhaust components like a catalytic converter (gas engines) or DPF (exhaust filter on diesel engines) cause this issue here as well as exhaust sensors that can fail and cause this fault.These are the most common causes.The fault codes do need read out though since there are several possible causes here and this will help diagnose and locate the fault.In some cases the local parts store can also give you an idea of the fault or the code may point straight to the fault in some rare cases.
