Your check engine light might come on because of an issue that affects the performance of your car, its impact on the environment, or both. When your check engine light turns on it may be due to the fact that your vehicle is emitting hydrocarbon into the air from gasoline. This contributes to automobile pollution and may prevent you from passing an emissions test. When this emissions issue occurs, you must replace your gas cap as well as your fuel filler neck. Although failing to do so will not affect the way your car runs, it will damage the environment and keep you from passing inspection, which is both noteworthy problems in themselves.
