the Check Engine Light is on
My car has 160 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi there. There are a lot of things that can cause the Check Engine Light to be illuminated. A flashing check engine light is a sign of serious trouble. If the light is not flashing, then I would use a diagnostic scan tool to retrieve the code that is stored. A code is stored when operating conditions of a specific system go beyond the parameters. The code does not diagnose the issue, it simply narrows the search for the technician. YourMechanic has several available technicians that can assist you with a Check Engine Light inspection so that this can be resolved.
