CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON? FOR PRICES & QUESTIONS CALL 413-786-0959.
A glowing or flashing CHECK ENGINE or SERVICE ENGINE SOON light alerts you to problems in you vehicle’s onboard diagnostic system that should be checked out as soon as possible. Many times you won’t notice a difference in vehicle performance.
SYMPTOMS OF THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT
CHECK THE GAS CAP – First, check the gas cap to make sure it wasn’t left loose after refueling. Sometimes, this can trigger the light. If the gas cap was left loose, the light should go out after a few short trips. If the gas cap wasn’t the problem and the light remains on steady, make an appointment to have the vehicle checked as soon as possible.
FLASHING? – Important: A light that flashes requires more prompt attention, indicating a more serious problem that must be checked out immediately to prevent damage to the catalytic converter. When you experience a flashing light, minimize driving at high speeds or under heavy loads.
