Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Recently, engine replace 4/16, had new alternator, and coolant hose replaced. I stalled before all this was done, but now is stalling more frequently and check engine light is on. The oil leak also just start, very little oil is leaking but does leave a small amount each time it is parked.

Just take it to a shop, they will check the engine trouble codes since the check engine light is on. This will let them know what to look at. The oil leak, well, it is a 2001. It should be looked at to know if it is going to be serous or not.
