Why would a 93 Ford Tempo engine light come on after it has been driven 6 miles or more but not at start up?

Because the engine's electronics has gone into "closed loop" and one of the sensors is malfunctioning and/or sending a faulty reading to the PCM. Take the car somewhere that can use a code reader to find out what has gone wrong.

I have a 2001 Xterra which gets poor mileage and I have driven over 30 miles after the light came on on the highway.

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.

My service engine soon light came on a day two ago, I have driven the car about 20 miles since it came on. Today, the light just went out. The vehicle is running good. What would cause the light to come on, and why would it just go out on its own?
