What Your Check Engine Light Means

Sometimes your check engine light illuminates because your odometer has reached a certain milestone. At these milestones the manufacturer recommends scheduled maintenance to be performed to maximize your vehicle’s engine life. Modern vehicles have a variety of sensors that help to regulate pollution. When these are out of calibration or broken your engine check indicator will light up.
However, there are other times that your check engine light might come on. If a major engine failure occurs, your vehicle’s computer will send a signal that there is something wrong. In turn, the check engine indicator will come on. This is why it is especially important to get your vehicle inspected by a licensed mechanic when this light turns on.
