Hi and thanks for contacting Your Mechanic. Check the engine light for any other codes that would appear. This will direct you in the direction that is having a fault. If your engine is having an issue with the rpm’s and also stalling out, then check the idle air control valve (IAC). This valve has a great deal with the stalling issue and if the computer thinks that the sensor is not working, then the engine light will come on after a certain rpm’s. If you need further assistance with the engine stalling and engine light coming on at 2000 rpm’s and then going off under 2000 rpm’s, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
