The classic Check Engine light has sparked fear in the hearts of millions. But fear not, car owner! A great many issues can illuminate this indicator, most of them minor. Some common causes are worn out spark plugs or worn out oxygen sensor. Sometimes it’s just a loose gas cap so check that first! Otherwise, it’s time to take your vehicle in to see a specialist.
If you see this light come on, it may be accompanied by a rising temperature gauge. Either way, you are looking at a potentially serious situation. Engine overheating is not only inconvenient, it can dramatically damage your engine. You may want to pull over and call a tow truck.
The Battery icon is there to let you know that the charging system has an issue. That means we are not just talking about your battery but your alternator as well. Better get this system checked before you are left stranded somewhere.
Loss of oil pressure normally means you are low on oil. Top off your vehicle immediately. But also, have your vehicle inspected. Older cars do have a tendency to burn oil but whether your vehicle is old or new, oil leaks need to be addressed.
