SOURCE: check engine light on after
You have a leak in the fuel system somewhere or a bad evaporative system sensor, the way the system works is the control module for the emission system pulls a vacuum on the gas tank and lines to check for leaks, if it can't get a certain vacuum level for a specified time it decides there is a leak and the check engine light comes on. This may be covered under the Federal Emissions warranty, call the dealer and inquire if the Evap System is covered.

An easy fix, if the check engine light is on find an Auto Advance, they can clear the code for you. Any auto parts store may be able to as well, Auto Zone is another one that may be able to help.

Hi, since the check engine light (CEL) is on you need to get thetrouble codes read. Most auto parts stores will do this for free. Ifthere isn't one nearby, any shop should be able to read it (for acharge) 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 youhave the codes you can look them up here to get a description - http://www.obd-codes.com/trouble_codes/
Orpost the codes back here and we'll help you out. The next step is toget those codes though so you know exactly which areas of the engine toconcentrate your diagnosis efforts on.
In your case the problem is intermittent but it keeps coming back so something does need attention. The reality is it could be something as simple as a loose gas cap (since you have no real symptoms), however it could be more serious. Better safe than sorty, I'd recommend you at the very least get the code(s) read so you can judge for yourself how serious the issue(s) is.

Illuminates when the ignition is switched on. It should extinguish as soon as
the engine starts.
If it illuminates with the engine running, it indicates a malfunction with the engine management system. Have this checked as soon as possible.
If it flashes when driving, reduce the vehicle speed immediately until the light illuminates constantly. If it continues to flash, avoid heavy acceleration and high engine speed, stop the vehicle and have it checked immediately.
On some vehicles this light may be red - again stop the vehicle and seek assistance.
If it is safe to do so, try stopping the vehicle, switching off the engine, wait two minutes, then restarting the engine to reset the engine management system.
With the light illuminated, the vehicle is still safe to drive as long as no other faults are apparent with the engine. Have the vehicle checked by a dealer or garage as soon as possible to avoid any damage being caused to the catalytic converter
