What is the "Check Engine Light?"

The check engine light is an indicator on your dashboard that looks like a vehicle's engine with the word "Check" under it. Many Ford vehicles display messages like "Ford Engine Malfunction Service Now" or Ford Engine Service Now." This badge will light up when the vehicle's onboard diagnostics system has detected an issue with your vehicle's ignition, fuel, emissions, or exhaust systems. Sometimes the problem could be as minor as your fuel cap not being closed properly. Other times a check engine light can indicate a major issue such as the misfiring of your engine.

Most common check engine light issues

The most common cause of a check engine light is replacing a faulty oxygen sensor. In fact, oxygen sensor replacements are responsible for about 8% of all check engine light repairs. Other common reasons for check engine light issues include a bad catalytic converter, faulty fuel cap, an old mass airflow sensor, or a need for spark plug replacement. To know exactly what is wrong with the engine, you will want to have our service team take a look at the issue.
