My Check Engine Light Went On — What Now?
Say you’re taking a trip from Minneapolis to Maple Grove and the dreaded “check engine” light in your instrument cluster lights up. Your stomach might turn at the thought, but don’t panic! The check engine light light can signify plenty of minor issues, not just major problems.
So let’s do some troubleshooting. And if you’re still stumped aftward, don’t hesitate to bring your car into the Cornerstone Plymouth’s service department so we can get to the bottom of it.
Why Did My Check Engine Light Turn On?
Some of the most common reasons that your Check Engine light might be on include:
|Reason||What Could Happen if You Don’t Get Service|
|Oxygen sensor replacement warning||
|Loose, damaged, or no gas cap||
|Airflow sensor replacement warning||
|Catalytic converter replacement warning||
|Spark plug replacement warning||
How Can I Troubleshoot the Check Engine Light?
Even something as simple and easy as not tightening your gas cap enough can cause the Check Engine light to turn on, so that should be the first thing you check on. If you’ve got some car repair experience, you might try replacing individual parts if the problem persists, but it will likely be a timesaver to bring your vehicle in to a professional.
