The check engine light is a catch-all warning mechanism for a number of components of your vehicle. Ignoring this warning for an extended period of time can lead to the break down of parts and systems in your vehicle which could lead to very costly repair bills.
The check engine light lets you know when your ignition, fuel injection or emissions systems are running irregularly. This could mean something as simple as replacing a wire, spark plug or even an oxygen sensor. However, there could also be a problem with your catalytic converter for example. Certain makes and models have an engine light that will flash when the alert is of a critical or extreme nature. Continuing to operate the vehicle without getting it checked out as soon as possible is not recommended.
Instead, call or stop by Quick Lane at Garnet Ford where one of our trained pros will check your vehicle out with the latest in state of the art diagnostic equipment.
