Do you know what code is being stored?

No. Don't know what that means.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Someone said it needs to be driven about 50 miles at highway speeds. Would that damage the engine?

The check engine light on means there is a problem with one of the monitored systems on the car. This will store a code in the computer to tell us which one has a problem and where to start looking. Driving the car if it's running poorly is not going to clear the light and if the engine is running bad, it could cause more damage.

You need to have the codes read to know where to start looking. This is done with a scan tool or a code reader. Most of the larger parts stores will do this free for you. If you can have this done and post it here with me, I can tell you what's going on with the car. The code will start with a P, for example, P0455.

If the car is running normally, it's usually a problem with one of the evap emissions components. If this is the case, the car is safe to drive even with the light on.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.
