The check engine light can be triggered by any detected fault that would affect the emissions output of your car. Anything from a loose gas cap to a major engine fault could be a possible cause for the light. To find out, you need to retrieve the codes recorded by your car's onboard engine management computer. These codes tell a tech what system fault was seen, but not necessarily what caused the faullt. See the side links for more information.
