CHECK ENGINE LIGHT

2001 Mazda 626

2001 Mazda 626 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 101000 miles

a couple of weeks ago, the check engine light came on, then off, then on, then off. Last week it came on again, so I brought to EZ Lube for an oil change and was told that my gas cap wasn' t on tight & that that was probalby the problem. I am also having problems with sluggish starting from a stop position. Today, as I was pulling into the garage after driving for 30 minutes, the light came back on & won't go out. Do you think that I can safely drive to a repair shop to have this checked out? Do you having any suggestions as to what this could be?

Have the computer scanned for code/s-you have a problem within the engine management system that caused the CEL to turn on-This is your starting point of diagnosis, finding out what's going on.
