5 Possible Problems That Will Turn The Engine Light On

It's every driver's nightmare to see the engine light turn on. What does it mean? What do I have to do? What will it cost?! Don't panic. The engine doesn't have to be dangerous. Here are a few things it could mean:
533 × 400

Faulty or Loose Gas Cap: This will increase emission and reduce gas mileage. Good news is that it's cheap to fix, almost nothing! A new cap costs about $3. If you are a car owner, you will most likely want to deal with such problems.

Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF Sensor): The fault is usually due to a missing or badly installed air filter. Prolonged use of a faulty sensor can cause a car to stall, increases emissions, and decrease mileage.

Spark Plugs and Wires: If the car jolts when accelerating, you need to check the wires and spark plugs. Most of the time it's a result of wear and tear.

Failed Catalytic Converter: When it fails, the car cannot run. Catalytic converter turns the unfriendly carbon monoxide gas emitted by the car to compounds that are harmless.

Oxygen Sensor: Most of the cars have 2-4 sensors. When not fixed on time. A broken sensor can lead to a faulty catalytic converter that is more costly to replace.
