HI Patty, My Engine light came on after the first failed start up and then after the second successful start up, the light came. I haven't heard any funny noises from the car and idle is still smooth. Any suggestions of what to do next?

You may be able to visit your local auto parts store, some have a diagnostic tool they can check the reason your check engine light is on. Saving you some money up front in diagnostics can be easier when you can have them tell you the fault code before arriving at a repair facility.
