Diagnosing the Problem
Often regarded as a check engine light, your malfunction indicator light is often a telltale sign of a deeper issue. Fortunately, problems stemming from this light can vary dramatically, ranging from something as simple as a loose gas cap to a more serious, long-term issue.
Diagnosing the source of your check engine light can be somewhat tricky to do on your own, but there are a handful of common causes, such as:
- Oxygen sensor in need of replacement
- Faulty catalytic converter
- Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF) in need of replacement
- Spark plugs or plug wires in need of replacement
- Loose, damaged, or missing gas cap
