Our 2001 mitsubishi montero xls ran hot and blew a head gasket.We just got it back and it rus great but has a little shimey or puttin when we are sitting at a light,as if it is idle to low.Put it in park and it runs smoother. Idle sensor or throttle sensor got damaged from the heat? Not sure...just thinking out loud! Any other suggestions?

you will need to take it in for a diagnosis scan. this Will scan for trouble codes that will direct you and your mechanic to the issue at hand. it will also tell you how to fix this issue as well. once this problem is fixed, the light will shut off.
In most cases, it a failed sensor of some sort. most auto zones will scan the ecm for free.

It is most likely the Throttle Position Sensor has gone bad. But if the check engine light is on, the only way to tell exact problem, is to have a scanner placed on the vehicle to have the codes read.

The information below was complied by me, it explains what causes the check engine light or Service Engine Soon light to come on and the process of finding the cause.
When the Check Engine light or Service Engine Soon light (depends on make) is turned on the computer control unit (called the PCM) has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system. When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different. There are about 200 possible faults that turn the Check Engine light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.
