If there is one thing that makes most drivers shudder, it is illumination of their car, truck or SUV check engine light. This simple little light indicates such a broad range of possible problems, that you cannot know whether you need a new gas cap or major auto repair service. Whether the light remains steady or it flashes to indicate a more urgent problem, you need to get your vehicle to Yadkinville Auto in Yadkin County, North Carolina for service.
About Your Check Engine Light
When your “check engine” light ignites, it does not always mean engine failure will happen. But you cannot be sure, until you have an ASE-certified auto technician inspect your vehicle and diagnose its problems.
The check engine light actually monitors your vehicle’s emissions, the harmful gasses released into the environment. If your vehicle emits too much dirty air, the dash indicator light ignites. This keeps your car, truck or SUV in compliance with NC state laws.
A flashing indicator light tells you that you have a much more serious issue, than something like a damaged gas cap. You possibly have a cylinder misfire, as one example. This type of issue can become very costly and even dangerous. You should never wait to have your car checked, when a dash light blinks. Before you can safely take your vehicle back on the road, you need car repair, truck repair or SUV repair services.
Even when your dash light signals for you to check the engine, but remains steadily illuminated, you still need auto service as soon as possible. Continuing to drive your vehicle only puts you at risk of bigger problems and much higher repair bills. With prompt attention to a steady dash light, you possibly only need a simple fix or tune up.
