Hi:
If the check engine light is on, there is a trouble code set in the computer that should identify the problem. Many nationally recognized parts stores will scan it for free, so I recommend having it scanned first. Chances are there is a vacuum leak or a problem with the temp sensor sending a bad reading to the computer. Does the vehicle seem to be running rich?
