Check Engine Light Causes Waukee, IA

When you’re driving down the road, the check engine light is not something you particularly want to see. Though this warning light means that something is wrong, finding out exactly what is a little trickier. That’s where the experts at Deery Brother Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM Waukee come in. When we inspect your check engine light, we’ll hook your car up to a diagnostic code reader to see the general cause of the problem. Then, we’ll do a more in-depth inspection and provide an estimate of what repairs might cost.

Is the Check Engine Light an Emergency?

If the check engine light is steady, it’s generally not an emergency–at least, not to the extent that you’d have to pull over and call for a tow truck. However, a flashing check engine light is a different story. If the light is flashing, it means that there is cause for immediate concern, and you should pull over and turn off the engine as soon as it’s safe to do so. Often, this is due to a misfire that could damage the catalytic converter. While a steady check engine light may not be an immediate emergency, it’s still best not to ignore it. Simply ignoring the problem could turn it into something much more serious and end up damaging your vehicle.


What Are Some Common Causes of a Check Engine Light?

The check engine light could mean a number of things. One of the most common causes is a faulty oxygen sensor. Usually, your car has both an upstream and a downstream oxygen sensor. These sensors measure the exhaust to check the oxygen level, sending that information back to the computer. The computer uses this information to determine the proper mixture of air and fuel that your vehicle needs, so a faulty oxygen sensor means you can lose power and efficiency. Other common causes include spark plug troubles, a bad catalytic converter, bad ignition coils, or even a faulty mass airflow sensor. This is just the beginning, since it could mean so many things, an inspection is necessary.
