Engine Check Lights. What you need to know.

 

Today we want to explain to you about the check engine light. When your vehicle detects an issue with an emissions based system it will illuminate your check engine light. 

Here is what you really need to know though. If the check engine light comes on, do not panic! Most of these systems are designed to operate your vehicle safely even during a failure of that component or system. 

Give us a call and we can get you in to determine the cause of the light and then take it from there. If the light comes on and starts blinking, then this is a sign that your engine is suffering from ignition misfires. In this case, you do need to stop driving or limit your driving and give us a call so we can get the vehicle repaired. Driving the vehicle with the check engine light blinking can cause damage to your vehicle. Simply drive to a safe stopping place and let us take care of you.
