Question about 1992 Mercury Grand Marquis
My check engine light comes on when Im driving. I haven't noticed a change in the handling when this occurs but wanted to know if I should be looking for something in particular.
The check engine light is part of the car's OBD(On-Board Diagnostic) system. The check engine light is turned on when a sensor becomes faulty or gets a false reading. Typically the check engine light will come on and stay on until the sensor that caused the fault is replaced. In your case you say it comes on while driving, so I am assuming when you first start the car the light is off. This would inicate that the faulty sensor is operational until it is heated up, then it is giving a fault. Have you noticed any thing strange while the light is on? As in lower gas mileage, running rough, running fast, low idle, high idle, overheating, anything at all that could help indicate what the cause maybe. Does the check engine light stay on until you park the car? If so you can have the "code" read from the OBD to pinpoint hte exact problem.
Hope this helps for now
