Have you been on your way to work when you notice the “Check Engine” light illuminate on the dash? Are you afraid this will lead to a costly engine repair? It could be just a malfunctioning sensor, or something more serious, such as low oil pressure. Should you keep on driving or head straight to your auto shop?

Do you know what is the most common reason for the “check engine” light to come on? The important concern is to make sure that long-term damage isn’t taking place in the engine and that you aren't compromising the safety of your vehicle. As soon as you are able, schedule a diagnostic test to pinpoint a potential engine repair issue.

What is the most common reason for the “check engine” light to come on? A faulty oxygen sensor! The oxygen sensor is used to optimize a vehicle’s fuel-to-air mixture to increase gas mileage and reduce emissions. In a survey, it is reported that replacing faulty oxygen sensors accounts for 8% of all check engine light repairs nationwide.

There are numerous reasons your check engine light could illuminate. However, following the oxygen sensor here are four other of the most common reasons the check engine light will come on:

  • Catalytic Converter(s) with new OE Catalytic Converter(s)
  • Ignition Coil(s) and Spark Plug(s)
  • Loose Fuel Cap
  • Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor

When the electronic-control system finds a problem it cannot adjust, the little warning light in the instrument panel illuminates and stores a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) in its memory. This code helps your mechanic pinpoint the source of a potential problem, from a loose gas cap to a misfiring engine.
