Many of our customers will ask why their Check Engine Light is on. They also ask, “Is it safe to drive with an Engine Light On?”
Well the answer to why your engine light is on, or as we call it, the “Check Engine Light,” is not so simple to answer. A Check Engine Light can come on because of hundreds of different reasons. Some common examples of an Engine Light is a Loose Gas Cap, an Evaporative System Leak, and Engine Misfire, to name a few.
It is hard to verbally tell you over the phone if your car is safe to drive, if it has a Check Engine Light on. We would suggest bringing your car to a qualified Auto Repair Dealer, like American Garage in Chinook, to make sure your vehicle is safe to drive.
Is the Engine Light Blinking? A flashing (or blinking) Check Engine Light could mean a more serious issue, especially if your Engine is running rough. If you have a flashing Check Engine Light, please don’t drive your car, even for short distances.
