Check Engine Light in South Elgin, IL

Having a check engine light come on could be no big deal and may involve something simple, such as a loose gas cap, but it’s a good idea to bring your car to Honest-1 Auto Care. We can take a look with our vehicle diagnostic tools and fix whatever issue you may have, most likely the same day.

Reasons Why Your Engine Light is On

There may be several reasons why your engine light is on, which include:

  • Your oxygen (O2) sensor needs replacing—without fixing it, your engine will burn more fuel than necessary, and you will lose up to 40% of fuel economy. Plus, a faulty sensor can cause damage to both your catalytic converter and spark plugs.

  • The MAF (mass airflow sensor) needs replacing—a faulty MAF can cause damage to O2 sensors, catalytic converter, and spark plugs.

  • Gas cap is loose, or could be damaged or missing—you can lose fuel through evaporation and end up at the gas pump more often.

  • Catalytic converter needs to be replaced (mainly due to maintenance neglect)—vehicle will not pass emissions testing, and will have reduced performance and fuel economy, if ignored.

  • Spark plugs or plug wires need replacing—otherwise, you will experience reduced fuel economy, reduced power, and poor performance overall.
