Take it to a repair shop or you r local auto parts store such as autozone and ask them to place a scanner on it and make note of any trouble codes they find. That light will come on for a variety of reasons with a few commno one like your gas cap wasnt properly installed after fill up/leaving car running during fuill up to a major engine problem.
Does the Check Engine light come ON when this happens? Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. Once you do this and let us know what, if any codes are set, then we can go from there.
If you mean the "check engine" light (yellow) next to the "cruise" light if you have cruise control, you need to have the code scanned to find out what the erroe code is. From there, you will know how it can be fixed. I've been told that as long as the light doesn't flash, you can still drive the car. An auto parts store probably can read the code for you because they will want to sell you the replacement parts.
