Check Engine Light



Emissions based light to indicate that your engine is not running at its optimum engineered level. Poor performance causes bad gas mileage, lack of acceleration, pollution or even a non running engine.


Vehicles these days are designed to keep running in even the worst situations of failure. If a check engine light comes on 95% of the time you will not notice a difference in the way the vehicle drives.


If you are on a trip and it comes on but the car continues to drive normally do not be afraid to continue to your destination.


Though you should pay extra attention to your speedometer and how the car is driving until you arrive. If in the event the light comes on and the car is performing abnormally get off the road as quickly and safely as possible and call for road service.


P.S. A "Service Engine Soon" light is also a check engine light in some cars or you may see this
