There could be a number of reasons why the Check Engine light is on. US vehicles manufactured prior to 1996 feature a diagnostic module in the engine compartment by the main fuse box. Often a label is affixed to the underside of the hood explaining which terminals to access.

Using a simple metal tool (even a paper clip) to connect the two terminals will cause the check engine light to flash in the dash when the key is in the accessory position. By reading the number of flashes one can determine which code was set. Manufacturer’s code guides, available online, will reveal which system(s) tripped the check engine light.

It could be a vacuum leak, dirty fuel injectors, blown head gasket, etc. The longer you drive with the Check Engine light on the more damage you are doing to the vehicle. So if you are a DIY type of a person then you can check the code on the ECU or bring it to a dealer near you.

It might be just the fuel issue.
Tight the fuel tank cap, change the gas station and use higher octane fuel, use fuel injector cleaner or octane booster.
Good Luck

My driver and passenger side brake lights are not working but the center brake light on the rear door works fine. The fuses and bulbs seem to be fine. Any ideas?

I would try changing the bulbs even if they seem fine. Usually when bulbs burn out both sides go at the same time.

Electrica, maybe alternator

definitely sounds like the alternator has went bad to me, but check around the battery and firewall for loose wire connections.

Right brake light out; tail light works fine

most rear tail lights and turn/stop lights are the same dual filiment bulb. it is possible for your tail light to work and your brake light not to and still have a bad bulb. I would check the bulb first, your brake light works on the left yes? this would mean that the fuse is fine
