Come to Mercedes-Benz of Henderson for an Expert Check Engine Light Diagnosis
Your Mercedes-Benz is the product of precision engineering, which can be comprised if it isn’t taken to an expert for a Check Engine Light diagnosis. Ignoring the Check Engine Light can result in a loss of fuel economy, safety hazards, and, of course, costly repairs. Even if your vehicle is running smoothly and there are no apparent problems, it’s a smart idea to seek the advice of our Mercedes-Benz Certified Technicians if your Check Engine Light is illuminated.
Why Did Your Check Engine Light Turn On?
The Check Engine Light can be triggered due to a wide range of issues, but the most common include:
- Oxygen Sensor Problems: The oxygen sensor is responsible for measuring the amount of burned oxygen in your exhaust; if you fail to replace it, excess fuel will be consumed.
- Loose, Missing, or Damaged Gas Cap: The gas cap acts as your fuel system’s seal, at once maintaining pressure and preventing the venting of gasoline fumes. Fuel can be lost through evaporation when the cap is loose, missing, or damaged.
- Faulty Catalytic Converter: The catalytic converter changes carbon monoxide to carbon dioxide. Without it, your vehicle will fail its emissions test, run at a higher temperature, and suffer from reduced performance and fuel economy.
- Faulty Mass Airflow Sensor: This vital sensor gauges the amount of air entering the engine, then determines how much fuel is required. Faults can damage other key engine components and reduce performance and efficiency.
- Faulty Spark Plugs or Plug Wires: Responsible for igniting the air/fuel mixture, spark plugs and plug wires, if damaged, can lead to misfires and stalling.
