2012 Automatic Civic firing wrong Sign In

I had a question for you all if you'd please help me out. My 2012 automatic civic had its emissions light, VSA light and high temperature lights turn on after I scraped the back rear end on a curb. The exhaust shakes more audibly than before, I have to give more gas to drive, and I can feel vibration while driving or idling the car. My emissions light starts blinking after 10 secs or so idling or driving so I haven't gotten the codes for repair yet.

I checked my transmission fluid and it is low. I'm also due for an oil change and battery change. My question for you all is where should I check to troubleshoot this?

You blew right on by that temperature light telling you it was overheating. If you kept driving after that light came on then you could have done severe damage to the engine. I suggest you have it towed to a reputable shop for diagnosis.

Start off with pulling the codes and see what is there. Check all the fluids, especially the coolant, if this is overheating and you continue to drive it, you WILL seize the engine in very short order.

While it's doubtful scraping the back end caused any of this, you should get under there and inspect the back for any damage.
