Your car has somewhere a computer.
Nowadays most of the electronic circuitry goes "through" that computer.
Whenever the light comes on and stays on after starting the engine, there is a problem somewhere.
Here locally there are car parts stores, with hand held "computer testers".
These stores can test your computer for free and determine some of the reasons that light stays on.
You can also buy a "computer tester" of your very own if you wish. Prices around here run from 30 to 150 dollars, and include a book either on what is wrong by the code which reads on the display of the tester, or at least will tell you how to hook it up.
Usually there is a plug hanging under the dash, where you are not supposed to see it, that the store will use to plug in the tester.
The "check engine" light can actually tell you there may be several dozen problems, or maybe even more!
Some of these problems will affect the operation of your car, some will not.
A few of the you can fix yourself, most require a shop to fix.
If your area or state has vehicle inspections, your vehicle probably will not pass an inspection with the light on.
