When you need a Marrero auto care expert because your check engine light comes on, call the Marrero auto care pros at Twin Tire.
You’re headed to Wizard World Comic Con when it happens. Your check engine light flickers on. Your immediate reaction is to think, “Oh, no! NOW what?” Your next reaction, if you’re like millions of others in the U.S. is to ignore it and hope it will go away.
That’s not a good strategy but you might be able to get away with it for a short time if the light is steady rather than blinking.
Consumer Reports explains, “In late-model cars, a blinking light usually indicates an engine misfire so severe that unburned fuel is being dumped into the exhaust system, where it can quickly damage the catalytic converter, leading to an expensive repair. If that happens, you should reduce power and have the car or truck looked at as soon as possible.
“If the light is steady, the problem is not an emergency, but you should schedule an appointment as soon as possible.”
Consumer Reports adds, “Today’s automotive computers often try to compensate when there’s a problem, so you might not notice deterioration in performance, even though your fuel mileage might be suffering and your vehicle emitting unacceptable levels of hydrocarbons and other pollutants.”
