Few automobile problems are more vexing than the "check engine" light. When the light comes on, it may mean you simply
didn't tighten your gas cap enough after filling up or it could mean there's
major trouble brewing in your catalytic converter.
Find below the most common reasons the
"check engine Light " comes on; It is important to find out why the
light is on because "small problems can lead to big price tags" if necessary
repairs aren't completed.
Here's the list:
1.<<>> Replace the oxygen
sensor. The sensor is a device that measures oxygen in the car's exhaust and
helps regulate how much fuel the engine needs to operate. If it's faulty, it
will make the car use more fuel than needed - and end up raising your fuel costs
as much as 40 percent, Our Engineers said. "The vehicle will run fine, but it
will inject more fuel and you'll buy it more often," he says. Replacing the
sensor usually costs less than $200.
2.<<>> Inspect for a loose
or cracked gas cap. If you don't tighten the gas cap enough, or if it's broken,
gas can evaporate into the air, wasting fuel. A new gas cap typically costs less
3.<<>> Replace the catalytic
converter. The catalytic converter reduces toxic emissions and can be an
expensive (as much as $2,000) repair. Typically, this part won't fail unless you
repeatedly ignore problems with faulty oxygen sensors or spark plugs. So its
ranking suggests a lot of routine repairs aren't getting done.
4.<<>> Replace the mass air
flow sensor. This device measures air coming into the engine. Problems here can
be prevented by changing the air filter when you have your oil changed - for a
cost of about $20. If you don't, and dust builds up on the sensor, you could be
in for a US$400 repair.
5.<<>> Replace the spark
plugs. Changing spark plugs typically costs a few dollars a plug if you do it
yourself. Again, if not replaced, damaged spark plugs can cause the engine to
misfire and lead to expensive catalytic converter problems.
Generally, if the "check engine" light comes on you
can safely drive the car until you are able to stop and check the gas cap or
take it in for servicing. If the light is flashing, however, the problem is
probably serious and you may do mechanical damage by continuing to drive;
