I believe the (!) Warning Light is your starter ignition light. But the check Engine Light coming on after just having a new motor put in. My suggestion is to take it back to the person who just put the motor in for you. Have them check all the wirings and make sure there are no cross connections. I had my engine rebuilt 5 yrs ago. And they told me that my transmission had a morning condition. It didn't like to work first thing in the morning especially during the Winter season. Also check all of your fuses.

Light that looks like a sun with an exclamation point inside it keeps coming on. It resets each time you turn off the engine and comes back on after you drive awhile. What is it?

Check transaxle

Momentarily illuminates when the ignition is turned to the ON position.

Illumination of this light indicates that a problem has been detected and shifting may be restricted.

If this lamp remains on, have your vehicle serviced immediately.

See it here in your - Owners Manual

Light that looks like exclamation point in a circle located below tachometer flashing.

First off you need an owner's manual. You can get a free one here. The light that looks like a gear with an exclamation point inside indicates there is a problem with the transmission. May just be low of transmission fluid. To check the level dive the car until the transmission is warm, park on a level surface, place gear shift in park with engine running, and check transmission fluid level. Add only if necessary and do not overfill. If it is not low of fluid then seek professional help. The exclamation point in a circle under the fuel gauge next to the Brake light indicates you are low of brake fluid. Check the level of the brake fluid. If it is low you more than likely need to check your brake pads as they are worn out.
