Don't Let the Check Engine Light Turn You Off From Making Needed Repairs

Don't Let the Check Engine Light Turn You Off From Making Needed Repairs

The top 10 check engine light repairs from the annual CarMD Vehicle Health Index reinforces what the Car Care Council has been saying for years. Motorists who ignore the check engine light get less miles per gallon and could face costly repairs down the road.

"Many people fear that when the check engine light comes on, it is going to mean several hundred or more dollars in repairs, so they ignore the light and hope the problem goes away," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "Data from CarMD makes it clear that not addressing the cause of an illuminated check engine light can cost you in terms of wasted fuel and more expensive repairs in the future."

When the check engine light is illuminated, it usually means that the vehicle system, such as the ignition, fuel injection or emission control, is not operating properly, even if the vehicle appears to be running normally. The top 10 most common check engine light repairs as reported by the recently released CarMD Vehicle Health Index are as follows.

  1. Replace O2 sensor(s)
  2. Replace ignition coil(s) and spark plug(s)
  3. Replace catalytic converter
  4. Inspect fuel cap and tighten or replace as necessary
  5. Replace evaporative emissions (EVAP) purge control valve
  6. Replace mass airflow (MAF) sensor
  7. Replace ignition coil(s)
  8. Replace evaporative emissions (EVAP) purge solenoid
  9. Replace fuel injector(s)
  10. Replace thermostat

"Following a recommended maintenance schedule and addressing small problems before they become bigger ones will help extend the life of your car and minimize check engine related repairs," continued White. "It's important to note that most of the common check engine problems negatively impact a car's fuel economy and become more costly to repair if service is delayed."

The Car Care Council's popular Car Care Guide features helpful information about the check engine light. Available in English and Spanish, a printed copy of the 80-page Car Care Guide can be ordered free-of-charge by visiting www.carcare.org/car-care-guide.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Can't say enough good things about this shop. The owner was very nice and accommodating. I needed to have my brakes fixed in 1 day and it was ready in 1/2 a day. You can tell he enjoys what he does and it shows. I highly recommend taking your car here for service.

reviewiconAccommodating, Reasonable, and Capable!

Just before Thanksgiving and vehicle failed inspection due to electrical/wiring issue. Called and my vehicle was taken in that day and fixed within an hour. Cost was very reasonable and everything was explained. I actually live 30 minutes away but to find a business this accommodating, reasonable, and capable is well worth the drive. Thanks again, Mark!

Mark and the technicians as Camco are really great to work with. They have maintained several of my vehicles and I have never had a bad experience. From new tires to radiators, they provide great pricing and solid work. I had priced something out at another shop and Mark beat it by about 30%. I highly recommend his place. One really nice thing is that Dunkin Donuts is across the street (as well as lots of places to shop) and if you choose to wait with your car you can actually knock out a bunch of errands.
