Hey guys i started up my jeep fine i never have problems with starting it. I drove up to my friends house like normal, everything fine. We were going to go pick up anothre friend and then all of a sudden i pulled out onto a main road and my check engine light popped on. Its been on all day while i was driveing around. Anyone know what i should check first? I have new spark plugs and wires. And all my fluids are full (im pretty sure) what should i do?!?!

Your first step should be finding out why the light came on in the first place.

Autozone will pull the code for free. Obviously they hope you'll buy the parts from them. O2 sensors are pretty common but could be anything. You can try the odometer trip listed in the sticky section to try and get the code.
