i had the same prob once. with the hoses. i pulled one out when i was changing my oil once, and for the life of me, i could NOT figure it the fukk out.

yur engine light should turn off after another 100 miles or so.

Bump

Reset the ECU, Check for your Idle sensor if it idles funny adjust it.. but i dont get why theres a Check Engine light when you tak off the cover. Because the cover got nothing to do with your engine harness. Maybe something fell inside your head/valves when you take off your cover . Holla back
