Check Engine Light

Your vehicle is composed of complex parts. Every system inside your car works together to create a better performance on every ride. But if one part malfunctions, the performance of the vehicle as a whole is affected. Your engine light is the reliable source to see if you are having trouble in the interior parts of your car. Engine lights are related to any transmission problems. 

This onboard indicator is part of the fault code system, also known as OBD II, monitors your cars operating system and most importantly the vehicle’s engine and transmission. Its purpose is to ensure that the vehicle is operating in good condition at lower emissions.

There are two indicators for your engine lights, blinking lights or steady light. If the engine indicator is blinking then that means you have a serious problem such as a severe misfiring of engine. Your OBD II system may have detected a critical system error that needs immediate attention. So if you experience this, do not push your car to its limit and call the nearest car service to check your engine lights.

However, a non- flashing or steady engine light means a less severe problem. But this does not mean that you should disregard the systems hint. Though immediate solution is not necessary, you should get your car checked. It is better safe than sorry.

But what causes an engine light to be flashing?


Damaged Gas Cap

Your gas cap seals your fuel system that helps maintain the pressure of your fuel tank. If your engine light is on, take a minute to pull over and check your gas cap. A little tightening can solve your problem, but if it is severely damaged, head to our nearest car service and we will do the work for you.


Too rich running system

Having too high fuel to oxygen ratio can give you multiple misfires. This problem is usually caused by faulty mass air flow sensor, air filter, restriction of the airstream, fuel injector delivery problem or a fuel pressure.


Malfunctioning oxygen sensor

Most vehicles comprises of two to four oxygen sensors. If any of these are malfunctioning, your OBD II will not provide the correct data because of error exhaust for unburned oxygen. Oxygen sensors are responsible for your engines efficacy and proper air to fuel ratio. 


Spark plugs and wires

Cars do not always get its best condition especially for vehicles that are scarred through time. Older vehicles requires new plugs and wires to keep the vehicle from failing. Spark plugs acts seals the combustion chamber and gives way for a gap from the spark.
