At Parker Towing Inc. we recommend that you never ignore a blinking check engine light, as you could end up causing extensive damage to the vehicle, and even worse, wind up stranded on the side of the road.
There are several reasons that a check engine light can come on. Sometimes it’s an easy, inexpensive fix and sometimes it does end up costing more money. But it is always better to get it taken care of sooner rather than later as the check engine light sometimes serves as a warning that something bad is happening inside your engine. If you act right away, there’s a chance to avoid complete disaster and having to call us to come out and give you a tow – we are available 24/7, nonetheless.
A Steady Check Engine Light vs. Blinking
There’s typically a big difference between a steady and blinking check engine light. When it begins to flash, a situation is occurring in your engine that could possibly damage your catalytic converter, a very expensive and important component. Therefore, you never ignore a blinking check engine light. With that light flashing, you will likely notice that the car is performing differently.
As soon as you safely can, pull over, turn your engine off and give us a call for a tow. We service Parker, Lone Tree, Aurora, Littleton, Castle Rock, Centennial, Franktown, Elizabeth, Highlands Ranch. Now, if you decide to “limp” home, you could be looking at hundreds even thousands of dollars to replace a catalytic converter depending on the car you drive. Hopefully, that puts the cost of towing into perspective.
Now that you understand why you should never ignore a blinking check engine light, be sure to keep our number handy in case this happens. One of the friendly staff members from Parker Towing will quickly and efficiently get your car safely to a repair shop. Remember, even if you think you’re close enough to keep driving to a shop, the cost of a new catalytic converter will outweigh our reasonable towing prices. It’s better to be safe than sorry (and broke)!
