Hyundai excel 95 - 106000km automatic, after warming the car up for 10 or so minutes when you put the car in drive to take off it wont drive, it revs high until you put the car in 1st or low gear to drive off then move to 2nd gear then drive gear. Once the car is driving its ok, it just doesnt want to start off in drive once you have warmed the car up. Also the "check engine" light is lit up on the dash board. Could this indicate something needs checking. Thanks for your help.
