If you’ve noticed that your check engine light as been flashing, it could indicate a serious problem with your vehicle’s ignition, fuel, or emission control system. Keep your engine running smoothly by bringing your vehicle into your neighborhood Big Brand Tire & Service to perform an engine diagnostic check. Our experienced auto service professionals will be able to inspect the check engine code error and make the necessary changes to solve the problem.
It is impossible to find out why your check engine light is on without examining the vehicle and performing an engine diagnostic, but some possible causes for it being on includes:
· Worn out spark plugs and plug wires
· Faulty oxygen sensor
· Faulty airflow sensor
· Loose gas cap
· Catalytic converter needs to be replaced
Ignoring your check engine light can result in even more problems later on. By neglecting a faulty oxygen sensor, you risk causing further damage to the spark plugs and catalytic converter. Additional problems include reduced performance and fuel economy. Even if no check engine light is on, it is ideal to get your engine checked out annually along with your regular service to ensure that your vehicle is running at optimal performance.
