Is Your Ford’s Check Engine Light On?
If you’re like millions of other drivers, your check engine light has likely been on at some point, caused worry and probably also left alone longer than it should have been. And honestly, that can be okay for a little while. Sometimes the check engine light comes on briefly as the car computer checks in on itself, other times it can be minor issues like needing to have the engine air filter replaced. However, if it stays on for an extended period, you can be in for some trouble.
Why Check Engine Light Comes On
There are many reasons for your check engine light to come on, some serious some not so serious.
- Loose gas cap – always worth a quick check
- Car computer is performing a quick test on itself
- Oxygen sensor failure (O2 sensor)
- Catalytic converter failure
- Spark plug complications
- Dying battery
When your check engine light is stable, this isn’t as serious but should be looked at before it gets serious. This is your chance to address the issue while it is more likely to be isolated to one area. Sometimes your check engine light comes on and stays on, other times it comes on briefly or just for a day or two, regardless if it becomes a consistent issue, it’s best to bring it in for professionals to check out.
Check engine light blinking? Something has gone very wrong. At this point, it isn’t advisable to drive your car anywhere other than a repair shop.
