Without knowing what code was set it is really hard to say. Get the code read and post another question. If it were me and I did not have any problems with how the car drives I would just drive it in but that is your call.

I agree. Don't get excited over a CEL. The most common cause is gas cap. Usually something minor, emissions related (which is the reason the NHTSB and EPA implemented OBDII) and - as FoR says you can just drive it UNLESS IT BEGINS TO BLINK, that means a serious problem. I also agree that if you get it scanned and get a code, open a new question so we will see it. Personally I don't go back to every answer I have given to check

I agree with the above, and many national chain auto parts stores will scan if for free and tell you the code/source of the problem.
