While driving the check engine light came on but the car did not drive any differently ( no lurching, sputtering, hesitation to excellarate) nor is there a problem with the starting of the car. However, when I shut off the engine and turn it on again the light still remains on.

    It could be something very simple, For example, If you just put gas in the car, the gas cap may not be screwed on correctly, or something more complicated. Generally, unless the check engine light is blinking, it is not an intimidate or major problem. If you go to AutoZone, They will get the diagnostic codes and tell you what the problem is, at no charge.
