Hi, since the check engine light (CEL) is on you need to get the trouble codes read. Most auto parts stores will do this for free. If there isn't one nearby, any shop should be able to read it (for a charge) or you could buy your own code reader.
The code(s) you'll get will be in the format PXXXX like P0171 or similar. Once you have the codes you can look them up here to get a description - http://www.obd-codes.com/trouble_codes/
Or post the codes back here and we'll help you out. The next step is to get those codes though so you know exactly which areas of the engine to concentrate your diagnosis efforts on. Good luck!
