There are many sensors and computerized components that manage your vehicles engine performance and emissions. When one of these fail, the “check engine” light is illuminated. Although your car may seem to be running fine, it is important to have the issue addressed to prevent any long term problems.
Some of the reasons your check engine light would be on:
- Faulty Oxygen Sensor
- Loose or Faulty Gas Cap
- Replace Catalytic Converter
- Faulty Mass Airflow Sensor
- Bad Spark Plugs and/ or Wires
- Replace Thermostat
