Q: Q: Engine Light

asked by on

I was at a traffic light the other day and when I went to take off it was shaking as if the wheels weren't turning properly. The engine light is still on but it seems to be driving normally. The engine light has come on previously however the shaking didn't occur, still got it checked out and it was an engine misfire. Should I get it checked?
My car has an automatic transmission.
