The New Orleans auto repair experts at Twin Tire can help when your check engine light comes on.
You were headed home from the zoo last evening when you saw it - the check engine light was on. There are few things a car owner dreads more than to see that light flicker on.
Before you panic, tighten your gas cap. If that doesn't fix the problem, it's time to take your car to the trusted New Orleans auto repair experts at Twin Tire Auto Care to have them find the problem.
What you shouldn't do is wait and hope the issue will go away. Consumer Reports explains: "If the 'check engine' light illuminates, it will either blink or remain constant, depending on the problem. Either way, you should have the vehicle checked by a mechanic, although a blinking light or, on some cars, a red light instead of a yellow/orange light indicates a problem that needs immediate attention."
Consumer Reports quotes Jim Collins, a national training team leader for Ford Motor Co., who says, "The customer is really, in the long run, potentially hurting their pocket book by leaving that light on and ignoring it."
