If the check engine light is going on and off then it is very highly likely pointing to a misfire, and this could be due to any number of things, and your best bet by far is to have a code read done as this will give you information as to the cause of the problem, if not point you directly at the problem itself.
It could be coil packs, spark plugs, injectors, crank sensor, cam sensor, any number of things.

This could be a timing belt as well. have they looked at that as possibility. Sometimes the belt just jumps teeth causing it to still run just not correct.

If the computer doesn't detect any further issues during it's next several test cycles, the light should turn off. A test cycle may not be performed unless all the conditions it requires are met (been running for a certain period of time, engine temp, etc). On some cases, can take a week or two to turn off. Otherwise you can get an OBD-II scanner and manually turn off the light if you don't want to go to the dealer
