9 times out of 10, when a Check Engine light is engaging, it's usually that a sensor has gone bad, most of the time in the catalytic converter. Or perhaps your Catalytic Converter itself has gone bad. That's where I'd look first.

relax it is probably something minor that needs to be fixed these problems are usually easily fixed the check engine light is mainly for the emissions of the vehicle and since they just repaired/rplaced and did a lot or work there may be a few minor issues. As long as the car is running fine good just call the shop and tell them they should take care of the problem very easy and quick.

check engine light means you been laying to many freaking farts in there and it cant take it anymore. next time you sit on it look at the seat and i bet its brown looking from all your raunchy farts and i bet the roof is brown as well. stay away from beans! man
