Vehicle dashboards have become more high tech and busy over the years. Now they are full of information to not only help you drive, but to make sure your vehicle is running properly. One feature that can be found on the dash of every vehicle is the “check engine” light, which can appear as the words, as the internationally recognized symbol or a combination of both.
When this light comes on, it’s your vehicle’s way of telling you that there is something wrong. It’s a warning that you don’t want to ignore. In fact, you should take your vehicle to a repair facility as soon as possible. While the problem may be minor, if left unchecked, it could lead to major problems and big repair bills down the road.
The check engine light will come on if there is an issue with any part of your vehicle’s emissions system. It could be something as minor as a loose gas cap, or a host of other issues including a faulty oxygen sensor, a coolant thermostat failure, an engine misfire, an evaporative emissions system leak, the system is running too lean, a camshaft position sensor failure, a mass air flow sensor failure, a catalytic converter failure and more.
The only way to know for sure what the problem is is to bring it into a reputable repair facility and have a diagnostic test run. At RPM Automotive, they will connect to your vehicle’s onboard computer system and diagnose the problem. Once they know what the issue is, they will provide you with an estimate for the repairs.
