    * CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON
    Try going to your local auto store and see if they can read DTC code(s) for you.

    * ENGINE OIL IS LOW AFTER CHANGING THE ENGINE OIL 2 MONTHS AGO
    Is it leaking or excessively burning oil?

    * VEHICLE SHUT OFF AT THE STOP LIGHT ON SUNDAY

    * DASHBOARD LIGHTS DIM ( CHANGED THE ALTERNATOR AND SERPENTINE BELT) NO MORE HISSING SOUND FROM THE ALTERNATOR.
    Are the lights now normal?

    * SLIGHT MOISTURE FOUND NEAR THE FRONT OF THE ENGINE ACROSS FROM THE THERMOSTAT.
    You can either pressure test the cooling system or run it up to operating temp and look for possible leak(s)
