The Dreaded Check Engine Light | Maple Street Check Engine

The car care techs at Tracy’ Automotive on Maple Street will help if your check engine light comes on.

The day was going well it turned bad when your car’s check engine light came on while returning from a Wind Surge game. Like many drivers, your initial reaction what dismay and a terrified feeling that something was seriously wrong with your car.

But, unless the light is flashing, there’s probably no reason to panic. At the same time, don’t ignore it or re-set the light thinking it’s a false alarm.

Caranddriver,com explains: “If the light is a steady orange or yellow and there is no perceptible change in how the car is driving, you don’t need to stop the vehicle immediately. There is a good chance it could be a minor problem, but …  it’s not smart to ignore the problem until the car does have noticeable issues. Sometimes, something as simple as a loose gas cap can be the culprit.

“In the rare instance that the warning light starts flashing, however, pull over and stop the car. This almost always indicates a serious problem has occurred, and severe damage could be done by continuing to drive the car.” adds, “Clearing the code and turning the light off doesn’t mean your issue has gone away. Some check-engine light warnings are temporary—like the aforementioned loose fuel-filler cap or a rare engine misfire. It’s possible that the warning light won’t come back on after you clear the code.

“Then again, if the light does come on again soon, you must conclude that you do have an issue that needs to be addressed. And if you can’t handle the repair yourself, then you should take it to a shop and have it attended to. Failure to do so could cost you a lot more later.”
