What Does It Mean When My Check Engine Light Flashes?
In today's modern cars, computers often try to compensate for a problem when they find one. But if they can't, they may turn on your check engine light to warn you that you need some routine maintenance.
Even apparently small issues may mean you're getting bad gas mileage or giving off unacceptable levels of pollution (even if you don't notice it). Why pay more for gas and pollute the environment? Get your car fixed sooner rather than later so it drives more efficiently.
If your check engine light comes on, your problem is probably not an emergency, but you should still get your car checked out by a reputable mechanic in Mission.
On the other hand, if it flashes, get to your mechanic as soon as you can. A blinking light can indicate that unburned fuel is getting into the exhaust system, where it can quickly damage the catalytic converter. That is one expensive repair, and one which you'll want to avoid.
Whether you want us to repair a major or a minor problem, let our Cadillac Service Center diagnose and fix it before it gets worse.
