Name is***** goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,
This check engine light can mean so many things so what i suggest
you do is have a scan tool or a code reader hooked up and check for malfunction codes .from the malfunction codes you will then know why the check engine light is ON .
All you have to do is repair this fault and then the light will stay out
if the repair was correctly repaired .
Good news is the light is not flashing so you may keep on driving until you have time to take the car in to be diagnosed .
If it starts to flash then get this checked as soon as you can as this is a misfire code which can damage the catalytic converter.
You may find you only have a problem with one of the o2 sensor ..
