What about the Check Engine Light?

It usually means there is something wrong with the throttle actuator control system.

I would start with cleaning the throttle body since the electronics parts would cause check engine lights.

Other things involved:
Throttle position sensor
engine coolant sensor
mass air flow sensor
intake air temperature sensor
vehicle speed sensor
knock sensor
MAP sensor

or any of the wiring.
