If the check engine light is on, the computer has storred information about a problem. You need to have the computer scanned for codes. Most nationally recognized parts stores will do it for free, but if the car isn't running, that is a problem. You could check to see if they will rent one, or you can purchase one from the Test Equipment Store site on this page.
Let me know what code you find.
