Have you been driving to work when all of a sudden you see the “Check Engine” light illuminate on your dash? Should you drive straight to your auto shop, or is it okay to go on to work? By understanding what the service engine light represents will help you in making this decision.

First of all, this warning light can mean various things, from a loose gas cap to a seriously misfiring engine. It also means that your vehicle is probably getting fewer miles per gallon and emitting higher than normal levels of toxic pollutants into the atmosphere. The important issue is to make sure that long-term damage isn’t taking place in the engine and that you aren't compromising the safety of your vehicle.  Head to your auto shop to get the light checked out!

So why does the service engine light come on? When the electronic-control system finds a problem it cannot adjust, the computer turns on a yellow warning indicator and stores a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) in its memory. With the use of a specialized computer, your mechanic can pinpoint the source of a potential problem by “reading” the codes that are generated. It may be that it’s only a sensor that is malfunctioning, or a more serious problem, such as low oil pressure or overheating.

Are you wondering what you should do if the service engine light starts to flash? First of all, pull over to a safe place and re-tighten the gas cap. If it’s loose or cracked, fuel vapors leak out and can throw the whole fuel system off, reducing gas mileage and increasing toxic emissions. If that is the problem, the light should go off after driving a few more miles. In the meantime, reduce your speed. It is typically okay to keep on driving if you have to get to work but you should take your vehicle into your auto shop as soon as you can.
