Can You Pass The Check-Engine-Light Test?

Let’s Get Started

This first question is pretty easy. You may begin!

Question #1:

Where is the check-engine-light located?

Answer: The location of the check-engine-light is on the dash behind the steering wheel.

Question #2:

What does the check-engine-light look like?

Answer: In some vehicles, it looks like a little engine. In others, the words check engine or service engine are written out.

Question #3:

What does a red and/or flashing light mean?

Answer: It means you need to stop reading this blog and get to an auto repair shop ASAP! Silver Lake Auto & Tire Center is your friendly and efficient repair shop in North Lake, Wisconsin.

Question #4:

What does a steady check-engine-light mean?

Answer: If the light flares up yellow/orange and still, your engine is signaling for help. It’s not critical, but your vehicle will need to be serviced sometime soon.

Question # 5:

What causes the check-engine-light to come on?

Answer: If you get an alert to check on your engine, don’t ignore it. Common causes are a faulty oxygen sensor or mass airflow sensor, a loose or missing gas cap, a bad catalytic converter, or worn spark plugs or wires. Of course, the only way to know for sure is to bring it to an automotive repair shop or hook it up to an OBD II scanner and wait for an error code. You can purchase a scanner at your local auto parts store.

Question #6:

Where is the best place to bring an automobile in need of service?

Answer: Schedule an appointment with a repair shop that employs ASE certified engine specialists, respects their customers, and offers advice and competitive prices! Also consider a place that offers a worthy warranty, preferably a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty. That kind of guarantee will leave you feeling safe and confident.
