My Check Engine Light Just Started Coming On After Inspection

i just had my car inspected (fixed inspection. i have no cats ) and after i drove it out. about ten minutes into my drive the check engine light came on. it has done it everyday since saturday. everything seems fine. checked my fluids, vacuum lines, etc... what could it be. maybe a sensor went bad. which one? any help would be great. thanks

check o2 sensors. Sometime spraying them down with cab. cleaner will remove all that carbon build up inside the sensors, and reset the computer. If not have an OBD1 test done on it.

If it's throwing a CEL, you should be able to check for codes and it should tell you where to start at.
