Normally they are not related items. You need to find out what the Check engine "Code" is? You can get the engine scanned for free at Auto Zone or Pep Boys shops Just ask at the counter


possibly, but the easiest thing to do would be to stop by an autozone or some place similar, they can pull the codes for free and tell you what caused the MIL to go on. or you can even buy your own reader nowadays for under $10 on amazon, that's a great tool to have
