The Madison auto care pros at any one of Madison Auto Care's seven NAPA service centers will help you track down the problem if your check engine light comes on.
You’ve been looking forward to the Mallards game but now, you’re more concerned about your car because your check engine light has come on.
You’re right to be cautious. While your check engine light could simply indicate something simple – your fuel cap is loose and needs tightening – it could also indicate something much more serious – bad thermostat – needs to be repaired or replaced. The problem is that it’s hard for a driver to know whether you’re facing a minor problem or a potentially major catastrophe.
Because of that range of possibilities, it’s hard to know whether to panic or not. Many drivers decide to do nothing and to simply ignore the light. That’s definitely the wrong strategy, especially if the light is flashing.
“It’s important to address problems indicated by the light promptly. Ignoring them could lead to larger, costlier problems later,” edmunds.com says. “If the light comes on, … the driver should check the gas cap. A loose gas cap sends an error message to the car’s computer, reporting a leak in the vapor recovery system, which is one aspect of a car’s emissions system. If the fuel cap is loose, tighten it and continue driving. Even so, it will take some time for the light to go off ….
“What should you do if the check engine light comes on and it’s steady rather than flashing? The most obvious answer is to get the engine checked by a mechanic. …
“If the light begins flashing, however, it indicates a more serious problem, such as a misfire that can quickly overheat the catalytic converter. These emissions devices operate at high temperatures to cut emissions but can pose a fire hazard if faulty.”
