Video Blog - Why is My Check Engine Light On?
The Check Engine Light strikes fear into the hearts of some Zion motorists and is totally ignored by just as many. Just what it means is a mystery to most of us Zion motorists.
Let’s get the urgency issues out of the way first. If your check engine light is flashing, that means that something is wrong that could cause critical engine damage. Naturally, you need to get that taken care of right away. If your check engine light is flashing, you shouldn’t drive at ILLINOIS interstate speeds, tow or haul heavy loads. Take it easy all the way to your Zion service center.
If the light is glowing steadily, you should keep an eye on it for a day or two. If the light doesn’t go off, schedule an appointment with your Friendly Northwest Auto & Tire service specialist to get it checked out.
Some more Zion information on how the Check Engine Light works may be informative for Zion car owners. Most of your engine functions are controlled by a computer, not surprisingly, called an engine control computer. The computer is able to adjust many engine parameters for environmental conditions, engine condition and even the way you drive.
