Has your Lexus CT, Lexus GS, Lexus GX, Lexus IS, Lexus LC, Lexus LS, Lexus nx, Lexus RCF or Lexus RX check engine light turned on? It can be scary to see an engine warning light suddenly appear on your dashboard. A variety of issues can cause a check engine light to come on. Some are more serious than others. It is very fortunate that European Auto Care Sacramento is here to help you figure out what the issue is and what your options are.
Below are some of the more common reasons for a Lexus check engine light to turn on. This is why we recommend keeping up with your Lexus maintenance schedule. We are aware of and expertly equipped to evaluate and take care of these issues for you. Simply drive by our shop, call us or fill out our Request Appointment form.
- Loose Gas Cap
The Lexus gas cap could be loose, broken or simply missing. Gas cap issues can allow fuel vapors to escape and reduce fuel pressure, reducing fuel economy and increasing harmful emissions.
- Broken Thermostat
The Lexus thermostat in the engine helps manage operating temperatures and avoid overheating. A defective Lexus thermostat can cause a check engine light to appear on your dash. It's important to make sure your thermostat is in good condition to prevent engine damage from excess heat.
- Faulty O2 Sensors
A part that works with the Lexus catalytic converter that often shows up as a catalytic converter failure on code readers, is the oxygen sensor. The oxygen sensor is also known as the O2 sensor. It measures the amount of unburnt oxygen in your Lexus exhaust system. The check engine light can be triggered by a failing sensor. Over time it will cause more fuel consumption and damage to the Lexus catalytic converter, so we recommend replacing it as soon as possible.
- Faulty Spark Plugs or Spark Plug Wires
Eventually your Lexus will need new spark plugs and/or spark plug wires. The Lexus spark plugs create a hot spark that ignites the air-and-fuel mixture in the cylinder. They are allowing your engine to start and run. If your Lexus has faulty spark plugs or spark plug wires, it can cause your engine to misfire and reduce fuel economy, performance and may even prevent your Lexus from running.
- Mass Air Flow Sensor Issues
When your Lexus is exposed to dirty or particle-rich air, the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor may fail. Like the Lexus oxygen sensors, the MAF sensor measures the amount of air entering the engine. It helps ensure the proper air-to-fuel mixture. If the Lexus MAF sensor is faulty, it can cause your engine to misfire. It may ultimately cause poor fuel economy, performance and possibly more damage to your engine.
