Q: engine light on on 2002 Ford Taurus

transmission went out on my car, had another put in, picked my car up Saturday and Monday my engine light came on and stayed on. Was wondering if the repair could have anything to do with it...

It's important to know what made the light come on. Advanced autoparts has free engine light code reading, and find out what codes were thrown up there. If the problem is temporary , the light should go off after 20 to 30 start and run sessions or the codes will be wiped out if you disconnect the negative battery cable for like a minute. If the light comes back on after clearing the code(s), there is still something wrong. Find out what codes it's throwing and report back.
