Is Your Check Engine Light On? Give Us a Call
There are few things that strike fear into the heart of a vehicle owner like the ‘check engine’ light suddenly coming on. As much as you might want to ignore this warning sign, you cannot. The check engine light always requires immediate action. When functioning properly, a vehicle’s check engine light is supposed to come on at the first signs of a problem. The good news is that this problem might be relatively minor, at least for now. However, that bad news is that if you ignore the check engine light and keep driving, you are risking a catastrophic engine failure. Not only is engine failure expensive, but it can be extremely dangerous. The bottom line is clear: When the check engine light comes on, call a qualified auto repair technician as soon as possible.
Why Did My Check Engine Light Come On?
There are many different reasons why your check engine light might have turned on. Some of them are very quick fixes, while others are somewhat more complex. Five of the most common reasons why a check engine light will turn on are as follows:
- Your oxygen (O2) sensor is defective, and it needs to be replaced.
- Something is wrong with your gas cap; either it is missing or it is too loose.
- Your catalytic converter is worn out and it needs to replaced.
- There is some type of problem with your mass airflow sensor and it should be repaired or replaced.
- Your spark plugs or the component plug wires are worn out and need to be replaced.
If you fail to take action, your car will experience decreased performance. First and foremost, your vehicle will be far less efficient, so you will be burning up dollars in the form of extra fuel. Further, your engine will be being worn down at a rapid rate. Worse yet, there may be a far more serious, dangerous problem with your engine. Get it to a mechanic.
