Handle Service Engine Light On

Category: How To Auto Repair

If you start your car and a service engine light appears, then your car is telling your something is wrong. In the past, a service engine light is so common on old cars, especially Toyota, that people like myself would just ignore it and continue to drive. However, all that must change given the new emission testing standards starting on 2013. Ontario now requires this issue be fixed or else you cannot pass the emissions testing.

There can be many causes for this light to go on from the very common not tightening the gas cap correctly to the catalyst converter needs to be replaced. Regardless, because of the complex possibilities, your best bet is to ask an authorized dealer or ask a highly skilled mechanic.
