If the check engine light is on, have the computer scanned for trouble codes. Most parts stores will do it for free. Next, check the catalytic converter to make sure it isn't plugged. Keep in mind, if the engine hasn't been tuned up for a long time, it could need it. Make sure the air filter is clean and there is no obstruction in the intake.
