Check engine light is on why?

Check engine light can be triggered by a faulty mass air flow low sensor. Your mass airflow (MAF) sensor measures the amount of air entering the engine to determine how much fuel is needed to run your engine efficiently.

A faulty MAF sensor can cause

  1. Your car to consume too much fuel
  2. Shortened spark plug life
  3. Damage to your Oxygen sensors
  4. Damage to your Catalytic converter

For best results, taking your car to a trusted mechanic for his evaluation my be in your best interest to get to the root of the problem before wearing yourself out trying to address the issue through a costly trial-and-error process – which could result in new problems if not properly handled by someone with proper knowledge and experience.
