Default got "check engine" message. Help!

I suddenly got "check engine" light on the dash while I was driving. Car was running OK and had been recently serviced.
Any ideas? I need help!

have the code pulled. If you have an autozone next to you they do it free. Most likely suspects are oxygen sensor and crank position sensor.

i had a CEL not too long ago..took it in to the dealer and apparently i didnt have the gas cap tight enough, or i didnt turn it enough so it gave a CEL. Make sure u twist that gas cap after u put gas at least until u hear that weird, cranking noise, like 3 times.
