Will it hurt my car or will it hurt my engine if the check engine light is on? No, probably not, unless the light is flashing. Nevertheless, you want to find out what turned the light on because it may indicate something that could cost you performance and fuel economy. Also, if the Check Engine light is on you’re probably creating more polluting emissions than you should. You can bring your car by the shop any time and we’ll pull the codes for you and let you know what the problem could be and what it might take to repair.
