Check engine light

(1999 Ford Escort)
I have a 1999 Ford Escort wagon and the check engine light comes on for a day or two then turns off. There is no code when the car is scanned. What is the solution to this problem?

Sometimes codes are funny but if a light has come on there is a code stored in the computer, perhaps you scan tool only reads "hard" codes, not "pending" codes and when you plug in your scan tool the code is reduced to a "pending" code status. We have three scan tools where I work each has its own benefits and limits.
