So, your check engine light has illuminated. The first step? Don’t keep yourself in the dark. It could signal something as simple as a loose gas cap, but it can also indicate a serious engine malfunction that could damage your car.
If you already suspect that your car isn’t running normally, it’s time to address it. Get your vehicle looked at right away – by us. If the check engine light lights up and your car seems to be running normally, check and tighten the gas cap. If the light remains on, have the car checked out at the earliest opportunity.
On some cars, a blinking or red check engine light warns of a problem that needs immediate attention, while a steady yellow light signifies an issue that should be addressed soon. If multiple dashboard warning signals appear, that’s another sign of an urgent problem that requires immediate investigation.
