Reply to Sam C.'s Post: 4 cylinder and check engine light stays on
Expert:  Sam C. replied 10 years ago.

The check engine light being on could help us a bit. The check engine light comes on when the car's computer detects that a component is not operating within its limits. What you need to do is get the vehicle scanned for codes. Many auto parts stores will scan the computer and let you know what the code is for free. Once you get the code, let me know. That little bit of information will make for a quicker and more accurate diagnosis.
