Hi and welcome to FixYa!

That light is denitely a CHECK ENGINE light. If this appears it should be diagnosed and a scan tool from the dealership will be helpful.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

You can also run to Autozone. They have a portable diagnostic tool that will tell you of minor things going wrong (poor combustion in cylinders, misfires, etc). The best thing is...IT'S FREE!! Hope it helps!
