Frequently Asked Questions:

What does the check engine light indicate?
The check engine light (CEL) illuminates when your vehicle's onboard diagnostics system detects a potential issue affecting emissions or engine performance.
What should I do when the check engine light comes on?
When the check engine light comes on, it's essential to schedule a diagnostic check at your earliest convenience. While it might not always indicate a severe problem, ignoring it could lead to costly repairs or reduced fuel efficiency.
Can I continue driving with the check engine light on?
In most cases, you can continue driving if the check engine light is steady and not flashing. However, it's still crucial to have your vehicle checked soon to prevent potential damage.
What should I do if the check engine light is flashing?
A flashing check engine light typically indicates a severe issue that requires immediate attention. It's advisable to pull over safely and turn off your vehicle to prevent further damage. Have your car towed to a trusted mechanic for diagnosis and repair.
What are some common reasons for the check engine light to come on?
Common reasons include issues with the oxygen sensor, catalytic converter, spark plugs, ignition coils, or loose gas cap. However, many other factors can trigger the light, so proper diagnosis is essential.

Even if the check engine light goes off, it's still essential to have your vehicle checked. Some issues might be intermittent or occur only under specific conditions. Ignoring the light could lead to recurring problems.
How can I prevent the check engine light from coming on?
Regular maintenance, including oil changes, tune-ups, and inspections, can help prevent many issues that trigger the check engine light. Additionally, promptly addressing any warning signs or unusual symptoms can prevent more severe problems.
