Oh, no! Not THAT Light! | Maple Street Auto Repair

Tracy’s Automotive will help when the dreaded check engine light comes on.

It always seems to happen at the worst time – like when you’re driving to the Aviation Museum with a car full of children – the check engine light flashes on. Now you have a decision – continue to the museum with the kids, take them home and then go to see a Wichita auto mechanic, or just go straight to a Wichita auto repair shop?

What you should not do is ignore the light. You might be able to put off a trip to the mechanic for a short time (unless the light is flashing – that’s urgent) but what you shouldn’t do is just ignore the light. Ignoring the light could cost you in the long run.

“The light is an indicator that there’s something wrong with your vehicle. It could mean anything from a loose gas cap to serious engine troubles,” according to rd.com. “A check engine light cannot be ignored... The system is telling you that something has failed and will immediately cause damage to your vehicle that will be costly to repair. Ignoring your check engine light could result in immediate car problems or deterioration over time.”

Rd.com adds, “You may not be seeing any immediate issues with your car, because your car’s internal systems may have the ability to override the cause … But it’s not running as well as it should be. … Continuing to ignore the check engine light on can also hide other issues … Because one light indicates so many different possible failures, other items can fail and be hidden behind the first failure. That can become an issue when the vehicle is looked at to fix the problem.”

Once you’ve decided to do something about the light and not to ignore it, you need to take it to a trusted Wichita auto repair technician like those at Tracy’s Automotive.
