Oh no! My check engine light is on. Now what?
Denny will tell you some main reasons the check engine light will go off.
He also explains how to avoid it from happening.
The triangle exclamation light is something to be taken serious. But don't
think that your car is going to blow up. The thing to remember is that your
car is an enclosed system. Check the obvious firsts: doors, gas cap, etc.

Check Engine Light Basics - EricTheCarGuy
If you have the code you can look up what it means here
Sorry about the camera focus on this one, whenever I use my wide angle lens
it tends to do this. Aside from that I have a lot of video shot that I
don't intend to post here because of time constraints, these videos will be
made available at a later date through the EricTheCarGuy website. I used
this video because I didn't have anything else this week that I could use
for the show and I like to do at least one a week if I can. I have lots
more scheduled so stay tuned in the coming weeks.
As for Check Engine Lights they come in all shapes and sizes, sometimes
they are easy to diagnose and others can be a bit more challenging. I plan
to do an entire series on this subject so don't consider this the last time
I will cover this. The point of this video is to familiarize yourself
with the basic hook up of a scan tool to read the codes stored in the on
board computer nothing more, I got a bit carried away with my O2 sensor
explanation and had to cut most of it. Much of what I cut from these will
also be available at a later date as a series of "Tips" that may be made
available on future shows or on DVD depending on the subject.
I hope this video is informative if you have any questions you can post
them as a response to this video or visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com,
