The check engine light comes on to alert you that something's not right with a sensor or other device that can effect your vehicle's emissions, gas mileage, or drivability. You'll want to have the computer scanned. Auto parts stores like Advance or Autozone will do it for free. You'll get a trouble code from the computer scan. It will be a four digit number preceded by a "P". Example: P0300. Post your trouble code here and we can help. HTH. -Jim
