5 Most Common Reasons for a Check Engine Light
The Check Engine Light or Service Engine Soon Warning Light is one of the most frustrating and confusing warnings for vehicle owners.
A steady warning light means there is no immediate cause for alarm, but you should still get it checked out. A flashing warning light means that the problem is more serious, and you must check for codes.
Common causes vary depending on your vehicle’s brand, but here is a list in general of the most common:
1. Loose or damaged gas cap
2. Worn out or faulty spark plugs
3. Faulty Oxygen (O2) Sensor
4. Faulty Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor
5. Faulty Camshaft Position Sensor
