Why Would My Check Engine Light On?

Your check engine light can illuminate for a multitude of reasons – from minor malfunctions like a faulty oxygen sensor or a loose gas cap to major engine failures like a blown head gasket or a failed transmission. While every check engine light should be taken seriously, your vehicle has a way of telling you that certain faults are emergencies.

Solid Check Engine Light – This could be anything from a failed water pump to something minor like a loose gas cap. A solid check engine light may result in little to no loss in engine performance. Since there’s no telling exactly what component has failed or malfunctioned without a professional diagnosis, it’s best to bring your vehicle in for service at your earliest convenience.

Flashing Check Engine Light – A flashing check engine light is a sign of a mechanical emergency that requires your immediate attention. If your check engine light is flashing, you may notice a significant decrease in engine performance, and should see our professionals immediately to prevent significant engine damage.
