    You likely have a vacuum leak. Most likely culprit is the intake boots. They crack at the accordions. , Also check that the oil cap is tight and the oil dipstick is in tight. The check engine light is on because the computer knows there is a problem. If the CEL is on, there is a code stored. Whoever is scanning your car is not using the correct equipment or is not competent to work on your car. There should be mixture codes if you have a vacuum leak.
