It could be anything at all that is electrical or sensor-related in nature. Your car is an OBD2 car (for emissions), and it's a very strictly-controlled system. As a result, pretty much anything that fails will cause the light to come on and will store a code in the computer. Go to AutoZone and ask them to scan your computer for codes - they'll do it for free, where a dealer will hit you for up to an hour's labor. They'll tell you the fault codes, which will point you in the right direction for the fix. Get the codes that come out of the scan and post them as a reply here and we can go from there.

First change the fuel filter its due anyway at 90thou plus. then you have to check sparkplugs, due anyway. then have the fuel pressure checked if it is building 30psi plus. if not the fuel pump may be the culprit.

Most Auto Part stores like napa or kragen will read the malfunction code for you for free. Once you get that done post the code so we can give you a better understanding on your concern. Oh if your light is flashing please don't drive it that means you are doing immediate damage.

The check engine light also called the malfunction indicator comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.
