What the Light Means

The check engine light is part of your motor vehicle’s diagnostics systems. This is a computer that monitors your vehicle’s performance. In that, the computer that makes the check engine light come on generally monitors performance, fuel mixture, ignition timing, and regulating the engine speed. In newer vehicles, it also controls the shift of an automatic transmission. So, when the check engine light comes on it may be important.
The computer will light up the yellow “check engine” light when a problem is detected in the control system that cannot be corrected by the computer. The yellow warning light is there to alert the driver if anything is going wrong.

What to Do First

The first thing you want to do is check your gas cap. Sometimes if the gas cap is not placed on correctly or if it is missing this can cause your car to alert you. This is by far the easiest fix. All you have to do is make sure there is a gas cap in the proper place and the check engine light will resolve itself. However, if your check engine light remains on then it’s time to come and see Ed’s Transmission and Automotive Repair. One of our professionals will run a diagnostic to figure out what’s going on.

Once the diagnostics have detected the problem, we can get your vehicle on the schedule and get you back on the road. Click here to see 4 Reasons NOT to Panic When Your Check Engine Light Comes On.
