Yes it can. What code did he say was showing for the check engine light? With that code we can give you a better idea what your are dealing with.

CEL for rich condition can also be a O2 sensor.

Have the computer scanned at your local auto parts store to get the codes. Most stores will do it for free. HTH. -Jim
