the engine light is a generic fault indicator in your car to point out something is not quite right with the engine, having a loss of power as well is also known in some areas as Limp Mode or Safety Mode. it means the car is restricting the power it gives to ensure no damage it done to the engine.
the only certain way to find out what is wrong is to take it to a garage that has diagnostics equipment that can read the fault codes from the vechicles ECU (the fault codes will be the reason the light on the dash has come on as its reporting a fault somewhere)..
your mechanic should be able to tell you what is wrong with the engine from that and give you a more accurate cost at fixing it.

I AM HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM BUT MINE ONLY COMES ON WHEN I AM IN GEAR, IDLEING AT A STOPLIGHT OR IN A DRIVE THRU. TOOK IT TO GM AND THEY ARE TELLING ME IT IS A "P0300 AND P0301" CODES WHICH SAYS IT A VALVE TRAIN MIS-FIRE ( TO FIX IT IS A 2000.00 HEAD JOB) AND THAT IS WHY THE STABILITRAK AND ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON!!! IN MY RESEARCH SO FAR I HAVE FOUND NOTHING THAT TIES THE TWO TOGETHER.
I HAVE 102,000 MILES ON MINE AND IT RUNS PERFECT AND MPG IS THE SAME AS THE DAY I GOT IT. I WILL KEEP YOU UP ON WHAT FURTHER I FIND. I AM NOW IN CONTACT WITH THE GM DISTRICT SUPERVISOR.

SOURCE: Stabilitrak remains on once I
stabilitrak system is controlled by the abs module. Its job is to maintain
vehicle stability in situations where you may normally lose control by
activating the abs system and/or changing the valving in the shock absorbers.
When the message is displayed there is a problem in the system, could be an
issue with a sensor or wiring. There are a couple of common problems with the
system that require reprogramming the engine control module and the abs module.
This must be performed at the dealer. The only way to know exactly what the
issue is would be to have the abs computer scanned for trouble
GM issued a couple of tech bulletins in regards to owners having this problem.
I hope this helps.
