What Should I Do If My Engine Light Comes On?
First, check your dashboard lights and gauges to look for any obvious problems. Are there signs of low oil pressure or an overheating engine?
If you notice anything, pull over and turn off your engine as soon as you find a safe place to stop. This is especially true if your light flashes or turns red.
Then get your car towed to the Baker Cadillac Service Center so we can fix the underlying issues causing the problem.
If you don't see any serious problems, try removing and replacing your gas cap. This will sometimes resolve the issue, although your light may not turn off until you've driven a few more times.
If your car gives you an engine light code, check that code online for your particular model to see if you can find a description of the issue. Then follow directions to correct the problem, including taking your car to a good auto service center in Leominster so they can fix it for you.
Whatever you do, don't go for an emissions test with your check engine light on. In most cases, your check engine light is a sure sign that your car won't pass the Massachusetts emissions test. We can help with that too.
