It could be a few things. Don't panic it could be something very simple. If I were you and I just bought a car and the engine light came on I would take it to dealer to have it checked right away. When you say private dealer do you mean someone selling their own personal car or a mom and pop dealership (not a Toyota dealership)? Does your state have lemon laws?
