Get the codes read and post them here and we can try and help you. The CEL comes on (if you would read your owners manual to indicate that there is a problem with the engine or emissions systems and that you should take it to your mechanic for diagnostic and repair (or again, get the codes read and post them here and we can try to help you here)

The problem could be one of 100 things.

If the light is flashing, you should have the car towed to a repair shop. If it’s a solid light, common causes include a loose or old gas cap with a cracked rubber gasket, or something worse.

Some auto parts stores will pull the error codes for free. Get the alphanumeric codes from them (not their diagnosis or their interpretation of the codes) and post them here.
