About The Check Engine Light
If you own your vehicle long enough, at some point, you may experience an illuminated check engine light. There are several reasons why this happens, and when it does, you must make an appointment with us at Bruno’s Automotive in Fayetteville, North Carolina. The engine light plays the role of the messenger of your onboard diagnostics system (OBD-II). The OBD-II system constantly monitors the engine, the transmission, and the exhaust system for any signs of trouble. If it notices a problem, it’ll send the respective diagnostic trouble code (DTC) to the computer system, and then it will trigger the engine light to come on and alert you. The entire process is highly beneficial for both drivers and vehicles alike. Not only does it tell you when there is something wrong, but it also ensures your car receives timely service to prevent any large or expensive issues from occurring. When you bring your vehicle in, our ASE-certified service technicians will get right to work to provide a fast and accurate diagnosis.
Why Is My Check Engine Light On?
Since the engine light can appear for complications with the engine, transmission, or exhaust, the list of possible problems is lengthy. Spark plugs and spark plug wiring can wear, and if they’re not replaced quickly enough, your car’s engine light will turn on. Once spark plugs start to become compromised, you’ll experience problems with the ignition and engine performance. A faulty oxygen sensor is potentially a serious problem waiting to happen. If it isn’t fixed, the oxygen sensor can damage your car’s catalytic converter, which in turn will compromise engine performance and leave you with a costly repair bill. Your car’s mass air flow sensor monitors the air filter. If enough dirt accumulates in this filter, the engine light will turn on, and you might experience lower gas mileage, more emissions, and stalling. Of course, it could also just be a loose gas cap! This is just a sampling of what the problem may be behind the check engine light. For more information, consult our team today.
