If the check engine light is on with no codes, you have a wiring or computer issue.
I've had problems with the Intake Manafold and also with the spark plug towers burning out setting off the check engine light. I know there are more but this is just my personal experience with my 1999 cutlass.
The computer stores the codes until it is reset manually. The check engine light does not have to be on to check the codes.
Either try disconnecting the battery for about 10 mins. or have vehicle scanned to determine the problem

Yes a bad senser in any vehicle will turn your engine light on. Even a performance air intake will turn your engine light on.

Check the brake light fuse first. Then check for a bad brake light switch at the brake pedal.
If the "check engine" light is on the computer is NOT saying that all is OK. The light is there to tell you that you should read a code. It may be one of those codes that goes away next time the engine starts, so it would be a good idea to buy a code scanner and have it with you next time the engine dies, then you could read the code and see what the computer is trying to report.
what year and type of olds engine??
Your service engine light can be on because your gas cap isn't on properly or because you are having issues with your engine. You can get a free diagnostic at your local Auto Zone.
You might want to check all of your fluids i.e., brake fluid, steering fluid etc. Do you have enough oil in the engine? Check all the fluids and make sure they are at the level they are suppose to be.
