Check engine lights are just an indication to the operator that there has been a failure in the system and the computer will store a failure code for the failure. The problem you are having may be a misfire in one or more cylinders for shorted ignition coils from oil leaks. Have the computer tested and any codes tested to isolate the issue you are having.
