You need to have the code read for your Check Engine Light by a OBD II Scanner, once you have the code, a Mechanic or you can better diagnose the problem at hand. You can go to your local AutoZone and they can hook up a scanner and read your code at no charge to you.

Have you called shop that did oil change? Have a different shop check oil and filter to make sure proper filter used especially.

Transmission has a whinning noise in park if you shift to drive noise stops, car seems to idle a little high in park,no check engine lights on,noise sounds like its coming from bellhousing area when under...


check fluid level when car running, sounds like a pump wine, is it slight or annoying? you could try lucas oil trans medic additive as well as a trans fluid change. Get opinion from a reputable trans shop, or just drive and ya never know.

Check engine light on after oil change three days ago


Your "check engine" light is an emission light. Oil is fine. You have to find the code to check whats wrong. Usually an engine light is just a tiny problem, but in other cases it could be anything from a sensor, to a bad cat converter. With a check engine light on a vehicle will not pass smog tests. You can turn it off by unhooking your pos side to the battery for about 3 min. Then you will have to drive it 30 miles non stop for the computer to put the code back in and the light will come back on

Hard shifting automatic tiptronic transmission.


Is it a 6-cyl engine? If so, tt's possible that the shop where you had your oil changed started draining the transmission fluid, mistaking the tranny drain plug for the oil plug. While it may seem unlikely, I've a friend that had the same thing happen. Apparently, it's not unheard of for a person to confuse one drain plugs for the other. The thing that complicates it more is that the VW tranny does not have a standard fill spout (VW considers it a sealed system), making it difficult for a non-VW shop to rectify the situation.
Even if the car is a 4-cyl, the issue you're describing still sounds like you've lost a quart or two of fluid.

Auto Transmission 2000 Rodeo


It seems that the trans is slipping. The smell is from excess trans flood. If Trans is over filled, it can rupture seals and cause leaking that can get on the exhaust and burn.

Check engine light


Go to Autozone and have them scan the engine code. Post what you find. My guess is an O2 sensor.
