You can take your car auto parts place like autozone, hilow, etc, they should have a portable computer to attached to your car and it will give them a code for the reason of the check engine light is on. It could be something minor , but either way your best bet is to take it to a mechanic that you trust, that has the tools to identify the problem. Don't let it stay on to long or it could turn into a major problem.
