Check Engine Light Indicator

check engine

The mysterious check engine light can mean many things. Sometimes it means nothing more than a loose gas cap, but it can also indicate a serious engine malfunction that could damage your car considerably. If the vehicle is not running normally, get it serviced right away. With no decline in performance, check and tighten the gas cap. If the light remains on, have the car checked out.
Engine Service Light Colors - What Do They Mean?

On some cars, a blinking or red check engine light warns of a problem that needs immediate attention, while a steady yellow light means that although it's not an emergency, the vehicle should still be serviced by a mechanic as soon as possible.

If you notice an obvious performance issue like loss of power, or if other dashboard warning signals are illuminated, the difficulty needs immediate attention. But even with normal performance, the check engine light can signal a malfunction with the potential to cause performance problems.
