Question about 1997 Toyota Avalon
Something has failed or at least gotten a false reading that set a fail code in the computer. You'll have to scan it to see what it is. You can pay a shop an hour's labor to do this three minute job for you or you can do it free. Click my screenname, go to my tips and tricks, and select the one about saving an hour's labor. Once you have the code, you can post here as a comment and I'll help you further.

should have an OBDII connection under the dash on the drivers side. Looks like an elongated computer port, probably has a cover on it that says OBDII. You can buy a code reader from an auto store like pepboys for around $100 i think. Just a side note, usually if the car is still driving ok and not acting weird, it is an emissions sensor.

You need to have a code reader/scan tool hooked up to retrieve the code/s that triggered the engine light. You can have this done at most auto parts stores for free. Try Auto zone, Checkers, Napa, or Murray's. The engine light will eventually go out if the computer does not receive any codes after many cycles turning the ignition on and off. It will not go out if there are codes still present. After you've retrieve the code/s bring them back here and we will have a better understanding of what caused them.
