Seeing the check engine light (CEL) on your dashboard is no fun – but it’s not the end of the world either. There are literally hundreds of reasons why the check engine light may come “on”, and many are not expensive to repair. Having said that, if the check engine light is flashing, it’s important to stop as soon as possible (in a safe spot) and to turn off the engine. Driving while the check engine light is flashing can result in very expensive repairs.
But if the CEL is on, but not flashing, you have options. We recommend contacting your friendly Stockton mechanics at Toole’s Garage in Stockton – we are experts at check engine light diagnostics and repairs.
As previously mentioned, there are many, many conditions that can cause the check engine light to come on – from something as simple as a faulty gas cap, to spark plugs problems, to major engine or catalytic converter issues. That’s why we recommend taking your vehicle to a professional mechanic shop to diagnose the root cause of the problem.
