Overview of the Check Engine Light System

The check engine light is a dashboard warning that illuminates when the onboard diagnostic system senses a performance problem in one or more major automotive systems. Using a centralized computer and a series of sensors placed strategically throughout your Kia, systems like the transmission, engine oil, exhaust, and more are constantly monitored. When the check engine light system detects a problem, it will illuminate the warning light on the dashboard, signaling that there is a problem.


Why Prompt Check Engine Light Diagnosis Is Important

This is where we come in at Roper Kia – the light does not tell you what the exact problem is nor the ideal way to fix it. We believe it is for this reason that drivers often put off getting this checked out: the uncertainty invites wishful thinking that the problem is probably minor and can be put off until later. Unfortunately, we have witnessed many drivers put off their check engine light because “everything seems to be okay” only to find out later that a minor problem caused big problems.


What Are the Common Causes of a Lit Check Engine Light?

The check engine light system detects problems ranging from minor to severe. We recommend practicing caution if you see this light and getting prompt service because this will contain severe problems quickly. Here are a few of the most common causes of an illuminated check engine light:

  • Faulty spark plugs or coil problems
  • Defective oxygen sensor
  • Faulty mass airflow sensor (dirty or damaged)
  • Faulty catalytic converter
  • Loose gas cap
