Don't Overlook Check Engine Lights!

If you're like most people, you probably don't think much of your check engine light. After all, it's just a little light that comes on occasionally - no big deal, right? Wrong. Your check engine light could be a sign of a serious problem with your car, and if you ignore it, you could end up stranded, or worse.


What should I do if my check engine light comes on?

So, what exactly is your check engine light trying to tell you? Well, it could be a number of things. It could be something as simple as a loose gas cap or something more serious, like a faulty oxygen sensor. There are many potential causes, but the only way to know for sure is to have it inspected professionally.


If you're driving and your check engine light comes on, the best thing to do is to pull over and call a tow truck. Trying to drive to an auto repair shop could worsen the problem, and you don't want to take that chance. It's better to be safe than sorry.


Stay safe and let a professional help.

Bottom line: don't ignore your check engine light. It could be a sign of a serious problem, and if you ignore it, you could end up stranded or in need of major repairs. If your check engine light comes on, pull over and call a tow truck. Then, take your car to an auto repair shop for inspection.
