What does it mean?
There are many sensors and computerized components that manage your vehicle’s engine performance and emissions. When one of these fails, the "check engine light" is illuminated. Although your car may seem to run fine, it is important to have the issue addressed to prevent long-term problems.
Heat is one of the top two reasons for transmission failures. The other reason is the lack of maintenance not using the proper transmission fluids. If you don’t take care of your transmission and the fluid becomes burnt, you might as well put a fork in it, it will be well done by then. This will be a great time to call Skyway Auto Tune for your check engine light problems.
Check Engine Light, also known as Malfunction Indicator Lamps (MIL), appear for a reason!
When an engine is operating outside of its normal emissions parameters and the light flashes, your car means business.

If the check-engine light comes on, here are some tips on what you should do:
After 1996 all cars were made to hook up to an external error code reader.
Before 1996 however, cars reported their errors from the computer themselves
via a flashing code from the check engine light.
The dreaded check engine light comes on while you are driving only to signify that there is a problem. The specific error or failing part could be one of many different things that the computer senses for. You can bridge a set of wires in your car and send the cars computer into its error reporting mode so that you can find out what’s wrong with your car.
Again, this information is only useful for people who have cars that report engine trouble via a flashing check engine light. This should be true for many cars made before 1996.
