First, anytime your check engine light comes on, have your computer scanned as fast as possible, without continuing to drive your car. Because when you light comes on, your computer is trying to tell you something via a code it has set in memory. And this very well may be an important code.
If your "Bogging" and "Grumbling" is only a noise, and NOT a feeling, then this could be your power steering. But if your engine is hesitating and running poorly, then no, this isn't your power steering.
It's kind of hard for me to interpret your meaning of "Bogging" and "Grumbling", vs. Mine.
Usually those terms would be used to describe the poor performance of an engine. Such as: the engine stumbles upon take off, is hard to start when cold (not necessarily whether related), tries to die when at low engine speeds, etc.
But when you use it to describe a noise, I can't be sure of your issue.
As for your Check engine light, a low fluid level could set a light off on your dash.
If your issue is only a noise, then fill your fluid level to spec and see if the noise goes away.
If your issue is more of an engine performance issue, write back and I'll try to help you from there.
