Check engine light
There are several things that could cause this, the quickest way to find the problem is using a code reader.
Under your dashboard, normally on the left side, there is a standardized connector made to plug a diagnostic reader into; it may have a plastic cover over it but the connector has a number of round pins recessed.
The code reader is plugged into this and the device reads the static memory that records error messages generated by the computer using inputs from numerous sensors on your car.
These are displayed on a small LCD and need to be noted so one can decode the numbers from a manual or installed software on a standard computer.
The code readers range in price from ~$30 to nearly $200 US and are available from any auto parts store or many stores on line.
If you have no urge to own one, any service shop will have them and charge you a couple of bucks to retrieve your codes and translate them.

There isn't just one reason for this symptom. It may or may not be related to the recent head repair. Inspection of the engine compartment will be needed. I would first check to see if the engine light is on. If it is then the codes will need to be read. The codes could hold vital information to help get down to the bottom if this. If not, then look over the engine. Look for pinch, damage, pulled, or unplugged wiring and vacuum lines. your idle issue could be something simple. Maybe the mechanic accidentally put the spark-plug wires on wrong. The more tests that you run and the more information that you provide, it will help us narrow down your search. A large part of the engines functions are electronically controlled. It is possible that there is a failure within anyone of the many electrical parts. It is also possible that there is a mechanical failure. Low oil or fuel pressure, engine running cold, clogged filters, or a blockage inside the catalytic convertor, these could all be suspected and related. I guess the long and short of it is that yes, I have some ideas but no, I'm not sure which one applies to your car. Please write back with what you have checked, what you want to try, and any ideas that you have. Hopefully we can get down to the bottom of this soon. good luck.
