You can go to Auto zone or advance auto parts stores and they will check it for free. It can some times be as simple as your gas cap was put on wrong and u got an air gap. However it also could be something serious so since it's free you should go get a check up good luck
if your car run good and the light comes on and stays on it could be your gas cap replace it and see what happens a gas cap is worth the 10 dollars to find out at a shop it will be 60-80 for them to tell you the problem, witch would probley be the cap

Oh wow, your check engine came on? Sell the car & become a pedestrian, you are not ready to be a responsible driver just yet. Maybe you should start by checking the engine. Is there an engine? Is there oil in it? (look 4 a dip-stick & not the one looking back from one of the veh. mirrors) Is there antifreeze in the cooling system? (don't check it when hot) Most vehicle's came from the factory with neat little book called ...are you ready? OWNERS MANUAL Let's say you could start reading it before you post a question that heaven forbid is dumber than this one.
