What to Do with Your Check Engine Light Flashing
If your vehicle has a check engine light flashing, it could mean a number of things and a proper diagnosis will reveal the correct repairs or maintenance required. Your check engine light is part of a computerized warning system for your vehicle that monitors several engine components. If your check engine light is flashing, it requires your attention and a proper check engine light diagnosis. Possible reasons why your check engine light could be flashing include:
- A loose gas cap – Your gas cap seals pressure within the fuel tank, preventing gasoline and fumes from evaporating into the atmosphere. If your gas cap is loose, your check engine light will come on and you will also experience poor gas mileage.
- Failing Oxygen Sensor – An oxygen sensor monitors the amount of unburned oxygen in the exhaust system. A faulty sensor left ignored could lead to a reduction of up to 40% in fuel economy, and could damage your catalytic converter and spark plugs.
- Bad spark plugs or ignition coils – Spark plugs are directly related to engine performance, as they ignite the fuel and air mixture in the combustion chamber. Without spark plugs your auto will not start, and bad spark plugs will cause problems with cold starting, misfiring during acceleration, and if left ignored will cause damage to the catalytic converter and oxygen sensors resulting in much costlier repairs.
- Catalytic converter requires replacement – catalytic converters convert harmful carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide, helping to protect the environment. Damage to a catalytic converter usually occurs from lack of required maintenance or ignoring a check engine light flashing.
