Possible reasons for why your Check Engine Light is on

1. You need to replace your oxygen sensor.
This is an important maintenance procedure as your oxygen sensor measures the amount of unburned oxygen in your car’s exhaust system. If you fail to replace it, it will impact your fuel efficiency and may cause damage to your spark plugs and catalytic converter.

2. Your gas cap is loose, damaged or missing.
This is of course a minor issue. However, the gas cap seals the fuel system of your vehicle and prevents gasoline fumes from being released into the atmosphere. If you do not replace it, you will most likely lose fuel due to evaporation and will have to shell out more for gas.

3. You need to replace your catalytic converter.
Your catalytic converter usually becomes damaged due to lack of maintenance. This part is important as it converts carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide and helps you to not only pass an emissions test but improve the performance of your vehicle.

4. You will need to change your mass airflow sensor (MAF).
The MAF determines the amount of fuel needed for your engine to run efficiently. A faulty sensor can cause damage to your spark plugs, O2 sensors and catalytic converter. This needs to be replaced immediately.

5. You need to replace your spark plugs or plug wires.
To avoid experiencing poor performance of your vehicle, replace your spark plufs or spark plug wires immediately. Once worn, these can clog your catalytic converted or damage your ignition coils and O2 sensors.
