Is Your Check Engine Light On?

A "Check Engine" light  has to be one of the most frustrating and confusing facets of owning a vehicle. It's just a light with no information telling you what the problem is. It is normally  a signal from the car's engine computer that something is wrong.

Five most common are causes  are :

*O2 sensor
*Loose gas cap
*Catalytic converter
*Mass air flow sensor 

*Spark plug wires

 Occasionally, the Check Engine light comes on when nothing is wrong with the car. It could  just be a temporary problem caused by a change in humidity or other factors. In this case the  light should go off by itself after a short time.  If the light begins flashing can be a   more serious problem
What to do ....
Check to make sure your gas cap is on and give it a few more clicks to tighten it up.
 If that doesn't work, head to a mechanic or an auto parts store -- it's best to get a professional to diagnose the problem ( and some will even perform this service for free) .
Remember ... Even though the vehicle  could be driving just fine, you may be wasting fuel, putting out lots of pollution and damaging the engine.
