Welcome to 2CarPros.

If the check engine light is staying on, the first thing you need to do is have the computer scanned for diagnostic trouble codes. That will point us in the right direction. Most parts stores will do it for free. Here is a quick video that shows how it is done:

Have this done and let me know what code or codes are found.

Here are a few links you may find helpful:
