CHECK ENGINE LIGHT AT LOW REV'S

1997 Mitsubishi Lancer

Computer problem
1997 Mitsubishi Lancer 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 106000 miles

hey guys, im new to car problems as im just a qualified driver, im just wondering why my engine check light is coming on while my engine is idle at low revs, its happened a few times and gone away, but today it stayed on, it also seems to come on when its very cold today it was 1 degree Celsius when I started the car and it came on when ever I was stopped at traffic lights or if I too the car out of gear while driving, it seems to happen when the engine is just under 2000 rpm and goes away if increase the revs by a small bit, is this a common problem in old cars? Many thanks for any help on this
