If the engine light cames on, it will log a fault code. You can either take it to Holden and they can read the fault code and tell what's wrong and fix it. Or you could buy a workshop manual and find out how to read the codes yourself . They also include a list of the different codes.
It's a bit long to explain right now. I'm a slow writer.

Most auto parts shops have them for $35-$40. A wise investment, I use mine often and it saves me money in repairs.

very possible if there was a lot of coolant blowing out the exhaust, this will kill an oxygen sensor.
