You mean when you turn the key on to accessory, the check engine light doesn't lit? It can be the cluster, wiring etc. Bring it to a shop and get it checked out.

Im not lazy, and it was a spelling error.
I wanted to find out if someone knew or had this problem before and i could Do It Myself.
Is there a specific bulb for that engine light?

I'm assuming you mean the CEL on the gauge cluster. Yes there is a specific bulb for that light and you will probably have to get it from the dealer about $7-$10 each. You can switch the bulb out with something else such as the parking brake bulb and test if the bulb is the problem.

Does the CEL come on when you first turn the car on (you know, when all the other lights on the gauge cluster flick on and off)? If not, your light it burnt out. While the difficulty level varies on the car, it's usually pretty simple to get the gauge cluster out and swap out the light.
