My check engine light came on in my 06 Kia spectra. Could it just be I need an oil change?

you can run it in to an auto zone and get a code check. they'll be able to tell you what the light means. the onboard computer stores the codes after a light is tripped.
It could be oil level, but could be something more involved. If no auto zone nearby, a local mechanic can scan the computer for you as well.
