We’re sure you’ll understand that we’ll need to accurately diagnose your vehicle before any repair work begins by connecting our equipment to your auto’s OBD port. In the meantime, however, we’re glad to share a few of the more common reasons drivers see their check engine lights illuminate. The simplest issue might be no more than a loosely attached or poorly fitting gas cap. Believe it or not, that small problem breaks the fuel system seal. This can trigger the check engine alert and also allows your expensive fuel to vaporize and escape. Your car could also have a bad sensor. Common culprits are the oxygen sensor or the mass airflow sensor. Aging spark plugs could also be to blame, particularly if they’re dirty or if the tip (at the gap) is wearing away. As a related issue, old wiring can be problematic. Did you know that some older cars–particularly some luxury European models–could have rodent damage? In an effort to be environmentally friendly, some manufacturers tried using soy as a component in the rubber coating of spark plug wires. Guess how much wild critters liked that! Finally, although catalytic converters tend to last a very long time, a failing unit could trigger a check engine warning. From simple to complex causes, The Auto Experts can help you with check engine light diagnostics and repair.
