It’s the dreaded check engine light. No one wants to see it, and NO ONE should ignore it! The first thing you should think of is a serious problem that requires your immediate attention. Check the dashboard for additional lights to see if the engine is overheating. If so, pull over to the side of the road and put on your flashers as soon as possible.
The most common causes for a check engine light are –
1. A loose gas cap
2. The oxygen sensor
3. A spark plug issue
4. The catalytic converter
