Check the gas cable, it may be too tight. You can do that easily. I had the same problem with that "famous" engine light. Use 91 octane gasoline and take a ride on a highway 100 to 110 kmh speed (1 hour minimum). I have a 2004 Verona and it is a great car.
easiest way is to open drain plug on the radiator let it drain in bucket till it stops refill with water until you get all the coolant out. next time you refill put a cleaner in it and run it down the road at normal operating temperature for about 30 minutes let it cool off and flush it a couple more times with just water when it is clear add antifreeze in a 50/50 mixture one bottle antifreeze one bottle of water.
You can disconnect the negative cable of the battery for a couple of minutes (but you will lose radio settings and possibly others that the car will relearn), or you can go to an auto parts store such as Advance Auto or Pep Boys and they have a free scanner service to diagnose problems that should be able to reset the light. Mine does.
I've got the same make/model and issue. I've got a mechanic I trust who changed the spark plugs and pc valve (about $200). The problem has persisted and he's telling me we need to change the spark plug wires which I avoided because they were going to cost me $120 @ Autozone. So I knew if I'd ordered through my mechanic or the dealer they would have been twice that not including labor. If it doesn't work...I'll be calling click and clack.
One thing I can say...is that this car is the best example of why you need a trustworthy mechanic. Someone who is willing to try and eliminate an issue one at a time versus what they did to you. I really love my car and have grown to realize the parts are hard to find and rival BMW's in price. Find another mechanic...and if when you buy a part for routine maintenance...buy two.
I found that my check engine light comes on when I fail to turn the gas cap two clicks. It has something to do with the air . After I paid $50 for one of those diagnostics, I always make sure when it comes on to check if my husband failed to click the gas cap, correct the problem and the check engine light goes out before I have to gas up the next time and will stay off as long as I am the sole driver.
