You'll need an OBDII scanner or you can take the car to your local auto parts store. Many of them will read the codes free of charge for you.

Check engine light comes when its cold

Have the engine computer scanned for trouble codes. Autozone and Oreillys do scans for free. The code or codes will indicate the problem.
When the engine light is on, the computer has detected a fault in the engine management, and will set a trouble code.

Good morning. i just bought a 2000 beetle and while i was driving on the way home from work suddenly i have noticed my engine light came on, what do you think should i do?

Have someone scan the fault code. Some mechanics will do it for free, some will charge you. It could be something as simple as an evaporative emissions fault - which could be caused by a loose gas cap. Check that first!

I just bought a 1999 Saab 9-5 v6 and the check engine light came on yesterday and today on the way home from work my dash lights went out?????

Hi, this sounds like a voltage issue to me. Did all the lights go out on the dash, including the check engine light. Your best bet is to get the fault codes read at a local garage (not the main dealer unless you have money to burn). They should be able to give you indication of what caused the light to come on and you can take it from there.

I bought use tercel 99 its manual trans 152000km run fin for 2 day then engine light turn on still run good it just use mor gas

I assume you are referring to the Check Engine light on the dashboard. The ECU (engine management computer) will have logged a fault. A Haynes manual or similar may tell you how to read the error codes that are stored in the ECU. When you have read the codes, it will tell you which engine components are suspect and need checking. As the fuel consumption has gone up noticeably since the light came on, it suggests that the error code will relate to a fuel system fault. For information when the ECU detects that an engine sensor is giving unexpected readings, it overrides (or ignores) the input from that sensor and replaces it with a safe "get you home" value. In doing so, this may lead to more fuel being supplied to the engine than would be the case if the engine sensor was working properly. If you aren't able to read the engine codes yourself, you might prefer to take the car to a garage and they will be able to interrogate the ECU for you.

Check engine light was on yesterday, off today

Ford's can store info in the computer for a while . you can take it in to a shop and have them put a code reader on the port under the dash and tell you what happened... Sometimes these codes are just a one-time event and they will clear themselves... But a reputable shop will tell you the code and if it's a worry or not. Let me know.
