Your not hurting the engine, but your probably getting worse gas mileage and putting more hydrocarbons in the atmosphere. Have the cars computer scanned for the codes with a scan tool? The Check engine light/SES will mean something in the emmissions sensors is not working correctly. But resetting the computer, it will turn off the light for awhile, but the code is still there stored in memory. Sensors like an EGR, a nd vacuum leaks, Oxygen sensors can all be possibilities. Don't throw parts at the car, get it diagnosed. This way, you will know exactly what is wrong, and what you need to correct the issue to get your vehicle running smooth again. Good Luck!
