UH OH! Why is My Check Engine Light On?

by | Jul 11, 2019 | Car tips by Brad

The check engine light is a warning that most vehicle owners dread. It’s a signal that the onboard diagnostics system has detected a malfunction. It could be in the vehicles’ emissions, ignition, fuel, or exhaust system.

Before panicking, try to check the gas cap. Is it…
 -Loose?
 -Missing?
 -Worn?

The gas cap keeps vapors from escaping the fuel tank. A loose or broken gas cap can reduce fuel efficiency and increase emissions, causing the check engine light to come on.

Is your check engine light “flashing”? Take it to the mechanic right away. A check engine light could be a simple fix or a major engine problem. Don’t ignore it!
