Ask a mechanic online and get answers to your car questions
Hi. Welcome to chat! My name is ***** ***** I am currently a factory dealer auto mechanic. I will attempt to assist you with your concern today.
Are you talking about the check engine or service engine soon light is on?
Ok thanks. There are many things that cause that light to turn on. It generally means there is an emissions related concern that the computer has detected. What you need to do is to have the engine computer scanned for fault codes that will be stored. You can do this by purchasing your scan tool, or most auto part stores will scan the computer for free for you and give you the code. That is where you need to start to get an idea of what could be wrong.
Does it seem to be driving ok with no symptoms?
Then yes. It would be ok to drive it until you can have the code checked.
Your welcome. Rate this chat session with the stars above and bookmark this page so you can come back if you need to after you get the code and we can continue if needed. Thanks.
Have a good day.
