My check engine light came on my 1996 Mustang GT?

I was on my way to Walmart and it came on randomly. It drives just a fine as it did before it turned on. No unusual ideling, no smoking and it's not missing. Could it just be a simple sensor? I know this is a dumbass question but I can't help but worry. I've always had bad luck when CEL's came on. It runs like a brand new car, just has a damn light on..

Get your codes pulled and start trying to diagnose the problem.

Just remember that the code reader or scanner cannot tell you with any degree of accuracy which particular component may be bad, it just tells you that there are readings that are not within the manufacturers parameters.

You'll still need to test any components or sensors that are indicated to determine if they are at fault or are reporting a condition caused by something else.
