What Could the Check Engine Light Mean?
While a Porsche Certified Technician is needed for a concrete diagnosis, an illuminated Check Engine Light is often resolved by simply having any of the following components checked and/or replaced:
- Oxygen Sensor: The oxygen sensor keeps track of unburned oxygen in the exhaust system. Without a fully functioning oxygen sensor, you’ll likely experience a significant drop in fuel economy, as well as damage to other crucial engine parts.
- Spark Plugs/Wires: Spark plugs and plug wires work in tandem; the spark plug ignites air and fuel in the combustion chamber, while the plug wires carry the ignition coil’s spark to the spark plugs. If you’ve noticed lessened performance, one or both of these components may be the cause.
- Catalytic Converter: The catalytic converter transforms CO into CO2, making it crucial to the environment and your car’s performance. A malfunctioning catalytic converter can heighten harmful emissions, reduce fuel economy, and put your vehicle at greater risk of overheating.
- Gas Cap: The gas cap retains much-needed pressure inside the fuel tank, and like the catalytic converter, protects the atmosphere by reducing fumes. The Check Engine Light could be trying to notify you that this small yet crucial component is loose or lost.
