experiencing. Having information concerning vehicle issues means
less stress and more understanding for you.
My check engine light is on. What does that mean?
When a vehicle's check engine light (a.k.a. Service
Indicator Lamp, or Malfunction Indicator Light) is on, there is
a problem with the vehicle's emissions systems. This could be
bad oxygen sensors, a misfire (or "skip") in the spark plugs, or other
issues related to the emissions systems.
When my check engine light is on, will my car pass
If your vehicle is a 1996 or newer, then it will not pass Rhode Island
Emissions testing if the check engine light is on. Service will have to
be performed on the vehicle in order for the check engine light to
shut off. Narragansett Auto Repair is a State Certified Inspection
Repair Facility, and can diagnose and repair your vehicle to Rhode
If your vehicle is a 1995 or older, then the check engine light is not as big an issue. Many times,
vehicles with check engines lights on that are 1995 or older will pass State Emissions Testing.
