Anytime you see a check engine light along with any warning light on your car’s dashboard, don’t ignore it. It could be something minor, or it could mean something more serious is happening internally. What could start as a small engine issue, could grow into a potentially more extensive and more expensive problem.

Our seasoned Automotive Techs will perform diagnostics at Sweetie Boy Repair and determine why your check engine light is on or flashing. While it’s impossible to say precisely why a check engine light is on or flashing without examining the vehicle and performing a car diagnostic, possible causes of a steady or flashing check engine light can include:

  • Failing oxygen sensor

  • A loose gas cap

  • Bad spark plug/ignition coil

  • Bad spark plug wires

  • A problem with your catalytic converter

  • Bad mass airflow sensor

  • Engine vacuum leak

  • EGR valve problem

  • Excessive gas consumption or release of air pollutants

So when you see that check engine light, give us a call!
