When your check engine light comes on, you need the New Orleans auto repair experts at Twin Tire to help you find out what's wrong.
You were headed home the other night from the Pelicans game when you saw it - the dreaded "check engine" light had come on. It was followed by a kind of sick sensation because that's a warning that some really bad stuff could be wrong with your car. Ever since, you've been hoping it would just go away. But it hasn't.
And it probably won't.
As auto.howstuffworks.com says, "The list of things that can trigger the check engine light is pretty lengthy. For example, anything from a loose gas cap to a faulty fuel injector can be to blame."
Among the other possibilities: wet engine, blown gasket head, worn-out spark plugs, and loose or cracked hoses and manifolds.
"So first thing first: Check to make sure your gas cap is on and give it a few more clicks to tighten it up. If that doesn't work, head to a mechanic ... it's always a good idea to get a professional to diagnose the problem, " auto.howstuffworks.com says. "Whatever you do, don't lazily slap a piece of black electrical tape over it and go about your business. Cars just need a little love from time to time to stay in good shape, and neglecting a minor issue could lead to bigger problems down the road."
