If the check engine light is on, the computer needs scanned. Most parts stores will do it for free; however, it doesn't sound driveable. You have two choices. You can have it towed to a place that can run the scan, or you can see if a parts store will lend you a scanner to check it. If the light is on, there is a code stored in the computer that will identify where the problem is coming from.
Let me know what you find or if you have other questions.
