Don't ignore a check engine light--here's what it may mean

500 × 400

One of the most common issues that we see at our Stockton service center is problems with confusing dashboard lights--especially the gut-wrenching "Check Engine" light.

Why is a check engine light a big deal in your Hyundai? While you can have confidence in the quality and reliability of your Hyundai sedan, SUV, or hatchback, the miles you travel still put wear and tear on the components in your vehicle. And occasionally something wears out. In some cases, it could be a belt or hose, a head gasket, or a critical component, and you need to get your vehicle to a service center immediately.

The good news? Catastrophic faults and failures are not common, and more than likely your engine was caused by an issue with one of these parts or pieces of equipment. See the top five most common reasons that your check engine light has come on, then contact us to schedule an appointment for diagnostics:

  • Spark plugs/plug wires
  • Mass airflow sensor
  • Loose gas cap
  • O2/oxygen sensor
  • Catalytic converter
