The Five Most Common Reasons Your Check Engine Light is On

Check engine light is part of your vehicle's onboard diagnostics system, a tell-tale that the system uses to indicate a malfunction. The check engine light can illuminate for a number of reasons, from your gas cap being too loose to a major problem. Let's take a look at the 5 most common causes of a check engine light.

1. Evaporative System

If loose or faulty gas cap fails to maintain pressure in the engine your onboard diagnostic system will be thrown off. A loose, broken, or missing gas cap could lead fuel vapors to leak, which causes a reduction in gas mileage and increases emissions. The evaporative system is a very complex system, and gas cap might not be the problem. Sometimes electronic diagnosis or repairs are neccessary, so if gas cap is not loose or has any cracks in it, you should consult with a specialist.

2. Oxygen Sensor

The oxygen sensor monitors the percentage of unburned oxygen in the exhaust to help monitor how much fuel is burned. It is vital to your vehicle’s operation, and a faulty sensor may lead to a decrease in gas mileage or even end up damaging other components. If left unattended, a simple fix can become a very costly problem.

3. Catalytic Converter

The catalytic converter is an environmental control device that works to reduce exhaust gases. If catalytic convertor is damaged, you will notice a decrease in gas mileage. Also your car will fail its emissions test.

4. Mass Airflow Sensor

The mass airflow sensor (MAF sensor) measures the amount of air coming into your engine and tells the car’s computer how much fuel is needed.
If the sensor is damaged or faulty, it can cause:

  • Damage to oxygen sensors, spark plugs or catalytic convertor;
  • Decrease efficiency, increase emissions, and cause your car to stall

5. Spark Plugs and Wires

The wires and plugs are responsible for creating the original spark that ignites the air/fuel mixture inside cylinders of your car’s engine. When the plugs are failing, the spark plugs misfire and your engine will not perform at peak efficiency.

These are the most common reasons, but there are plenty of other possibilities too. The check engine light is not the maintenance reminder or service interval light. It provides an idea, but doesn’t replace a skilled mechanic. Remember - only a certified dealer can diagnose all vehicle systems, and if you have a question - contact us right now, or book a service appointment.
