Not sure on the check engine light, you would need the vehicle scanned for any trouble codes. But it sounds like your cooling system needs to be purged from air pockets. Check out this video on how to do this.....https://youtu.be/xeTgmdRkQtY

ok thanks, any idea why temperature gage is not working

It may be in a air pocket, or the sending unit may need replacing.
