New cars and trucks are certainly designed to be safer and more durable. However they still require upkeep and maintenance to keep them running smoothly. One of the best ways to keep your car running smoothly is to pay attention to the check engine light.

Although there are many reasons why a check engine light may come on these are a few of the more common reasons.
- Faulty spark plugs
- A damaged catalytic converter
