Hi .

The good news is the check engine light is ON when the engine is running , this will help greatly with the diagnostics.
What you have to do is get a code reader or a good scan tool and check for malfunction codes ,ones you have the codes then you will know what is causing you this problem .
It could be anything from many control sensors like cam or crank sensor ,ignition related problems ,fuel related problems .

Sorry not much we can do unless you have the management system check for malfunction codes .

If you can get the codes and you would like to repair this system yourself then let me know the codes and we can start to diagnose .Wink

Please get back to me for further assistance if needed with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service button this way i can get back you or suggest another expert .
Kind regards Greg
