Try to get a scanner that will read the codes on it and pull the codes.

thanks tech, do you think it slipped timing? and if so there is a possibility of bend valve? thanks for your help

It usually won't jump timing unless the tensioner wasn't set correctly. But even if it is set wrong it doesn't always jump timing.
If it did it might have bent valves.
Pull the covers and check the marks if you are worried it jumped.
