Hello and thank you for contacting YourMechanic. Most likely you have a loose connection or a sensor is failing. Check the crankshaft position sensor and the camshaft position sensor for any damage and make sure that they are mounted tight. Remove the plug to the sensors and check for any burnt connections or corrosion. If the sensors check out to be good, check resistance on the sensors to see what they have. If there is no resistance or really high resistance, then the sensor needs replacing.

If you need further assistance troubleshooting your vehicle, then seek out a technician, such as one from YourMechanic, who can help you determine why the Check Engine Light is on and suggest any necessary repairs for your vehicle.
