If your check engine light comes on it’s important to bring your vehicle in for a diagnostic check up before you put more miles on it. Also known as the Malfunction Indicator Lamp or MIL, it lights up when a problem recorded on the car’s computer system. While the light itself does not give you a lot of information, Affordable Car Care technicians can perform a computer diagnosis to find out why it’s on. If the check engine light comes on and your car is smoking, leaking fluids or making loud noises it may be better to have the car towed in.
