The check engine light can mean any number of things. The best way to find out is to go to your local auto parts store and ask them to read the error codes from your car. I know that Autozone does this for free, I don't know if other stores do. The codes will tell what the problem is related to. They can also erase the error codes after the problem is corrected.
