The initial solid check engine light is your engine’s first warning sign. While it’s not the time to panic, responsible drivers should get their lights checked out as soon as possible. The faster you act, the quicker, easier, and more affordable any repair needs will be. Your check engine light could be triggered by almost anything from a gas cap needing to be tightened to transmission repair or replacement.
If your check engine light starts to flash, this is a different and much more urgent condition compared to a solid check engine light. When the check engine light is flashing, it indicates that there is a “Catalyst Damaging Misfire”. This means that the engine is not hitting on all cylinders and continued driving can potentially damage your catalytic converter which is part of your tailpipe emissions system. Simply put, if your check engine light begins to flash, you should park the vehicle ASAP in a safe place and call for a tow. If you continue to drive the vehicle you will have a high probability of additional damage resulting in higher repair costs.
