    The problem is likely something else. Find a shop that will take the time to diagnose the problem.
    I don't understand why you have taken it to 3 shops though. If one shop replaces a part and it doesn't fix the problem, you should take it back to that shop and request that they explain why the problem you paid them to address is not fixed.
    Do you know the code that is causing the check engine light to come on?
