Final Answer

It could be a problem in the transmission, or it could be a problem in the engine that is causing the transmission to shift improperly Take the car to one of the auto parts stores that offer a free scan (Auto Zone, Advance Auto, and some others) and have the computer codes read. This will give you an idea about the cause of the problem
well DRIVING it with a messed up trans will RUIN the trans.....so the longer u wait the MORE it will cost....since eventually its going to leave u stranded and u will have to pay to have vehicle towed.....

**also might be simple as low trans fluid or filter/fluid needing to be changed....driving it in EITHER of those conditions will RUIN the trans...

** but anyway to answer ur question YES the check engine light will show fault codes for the trans...

** also ANY parts store will do a engine light check and reset for FREE...just take ur car to ur nearest parts store........
