27 Apr The Dreaded Check Engine Light…
The check engine light won’t turn on unless the vehicle’s computer has sensed an issue. The range of problems that could cause the light to turn on are numerous, and it can be frustrating to try and diagnose the problem when the vehicle seems to be running fine. Because there is such a broad range of problems that could be associated with that light, it is important that you get the vehicle to your professional mechanic at Willard’s Garage for a professional diagnosis. Here are a few of the reasons why the check engine light turns on…
It may sound strange, but it’s a fact that the check engine light can turn on when the gas cap is either loose or does not close as tightly as it is supposed to. If the light is on, then this should be your first step in diagnosis.
When there is a problem with the engine’s combustion, it is a potentially much more severe issue. Faulty connections within the engine could play a part, but major mechanical problems within the engine itself could also play a part. This is one of the reasons why you should trust the diagnosis to your professional mechanic at Willard’s Garage.
The spark plugs are another component that can cause the light to ignite. If one plug goes out, the others could also potentially go out. The light is an early warning sign of simple trouble that could become a major issue.
When the air and fuel mixture is off (Inconsistencies within the system are possible for any number of reasons) the sensors will pick it up and warn with the check engine light. The air and fuel mixtures should be perfect for the vehicle to operate efficiently and effectively.
