Something set a DTC (Diagnostic trouble code) in the on board computer. Buy a code reader or hire a mechanic to find out what the computer thinks is wrong.

If a check engine light is appearing when the car starts then the ECU is receiving an alert from somewhere in the engine. The computer should receive a diagnostic test which will provide an answer as to why the check engine light appeared on the 1997 Honda Civic.

There are multiple reasons. Have the ECU scanned and that will tell you where to start looking and what part is being effected.

The Check Engine Light comes on when the ECU has detected a problem with the emissions system. Have the ECU scanned with an OBD2 scanner to retrieve the code that has been set. That code will tell you where to start looking for the problem.

If the check engine light is blinking that means an engine cylinder misfire has been detected

This task requires an OBDII code reader. Your mechanic will have one or you can buy a cheap one from your local parts place.

A flashing check engine light is an indication of a misfire.

There is not one sensor. All the ECM sensors are tied to the check engine light.

There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.

By bringing it to a trained mechanic so they can check the engine is running properly (which if the light is on it's probably not)

No, the headlight bulb will just not turn on. The check engine light only comes on when there is a problem with the ENGINE, not the BULB.

It is very easy to reset a check engine light on a 1997. The light can be reset by putting the restet tool into the diagnostic port. The diagnostic port is located right beside the hood release latch.

The check engine light is just to the left of your battery voltage gauge in your gauge cluster . When you turn your ignition key to the run position , just before starting your engine , the check engine light should come on momentarily to check the bulb

Have it checked for codes, That is the same as the check engine light.
