Take it to an auto zone or advance auto parts today, they dont charge anything to scan it.

Do you have the K&N CAI, or the airbox mod or anything else?

Could be any number of things...had you filled up your car with gas within a couple days of it originally coming on? I forget how often the vehicle checks it but if the gas cap isn't on tight/leaking it will run a diagnostic every so many starts in an attempt to clear itself. This is also the case with a number of CEL conditions as far as I'm aware.

I had my oil changed one time and the cel came on. I went the weekend with it and on Monday before I took it in, I popped the hood. Then I saw a light golden brown substance on the head. At first I thought it was gas and a fuel line had broke. Then the dummy hammer hit me and told me gas evaporates when it hits the air and on a hot engine... well I didn't want to think about that. Then I noticed that the shaft for the oil was out because I could move the engine cover. So I put it back in.
