Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Appleton Fuel Saving Tip for Appleton: Check Engine Light

October 22, 2015



Here's a question for Appleton, Wisconsin car owners: How long have you been enjoying the romantic glow of your check engine light?

Hey, it's not there to create ambiance; it's a warning that something's wrong. (And, by the way, Homer Simpson's fix of covering it with tape is not a good idea.)

If your check engine light comes on, check your gas cap. A loose gas cap can cause a false sensor reading that'll make the check engine light turn on.

Check Engine Light Many conditions that trigger the check engine light can hurt your MPG. A lot.

If your date's eyes are smoldering in the soft glow of the check engine light, try to think of all the gas money you'll save by getting it fixed. Give Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Appleton a call when you are ready: 920-954-8500
