Hello. I would need to scan the computer for codes to see why the light is coming on. After a head gasket replacement it may just be that something was left loose or not properly connected. If you want to have this checked out, consider YourMechanic as a certified mechanic can come to you to [determine why the check engine light is coming on] https://www.yourmechanic.com/services/check-engine-light-is-on-inspection
