What happend before the check engine light came on?

Does your exhaust smell like rotten eggs?
If so, this is a faulty o2 sensor.
If not I woul suspect an emission component failed.
either way you need to have a scan tool applied to the car next time it comes on, then you will be able to tell better what it is you need to fix.

you dont say what miles the car has done.but you should now be using semi synthetic 20/50 oil and try using a fuel additive(redex/wynns)to clean the injectors.if you are using oil it is possible that the engine has lost some of its compression due to ring/valve wear.did you know that to convert your engine to a 130/150bhp unit,you only need to change the ecu try"diesel tuning"website.....
