Brake hose? PVC hose? Radiator hose? Vacuum hose? There's dozens of hoses and some of them are supposed to have air in them. There's dozens of sensors too. When the Engine Computer detects a problem with an engine sensor, it sets a diagnostic fault code in memory and turns on the Check Engine light. You must read those codes or have them read to know which circuit needs further diagnosis. I'm not sure what you mean by "seen a sensor out". Do you mean it was removed from the engine? Was it disconnected? Was it producing a reading that was out of specifications? If the mechanic disconnected a sensor while the ignition switch was turned on, that would have been detected and a fault code would have been set. In that case the code just needs to be erased.
Try cycling the ignition switch three times, then watch the odometer display to see what code numbers come up.
