Brake repair and what you need to know
Do not delay getting your car in to your favorite repair shop if the check engine light suddenly goes on. A check engine light can illuminate for reasons as minor as a loose gas cap or as serious as a malfunctioning engine. Usually a check engine light indicates that your cars onboard diagnostics check has discovered an improperly working component somewhere that could permanently damage your system if left unrepaired. Do not ignore an illuminated check engine light. In late model cars, the check engine light behaves differently depending on the severity of the problem.
