I own a shop, and think this; The light came on, and later (after
ignoring it) it started flashing. If its flashing; it means you have a
problem that requires attention right away, and should not be driven.
You could have a problem that will do severe damage to the engine,
and/or other components in the vehicle. If its not knocking, squeaking,
or dieing in the road, then this must mean you can still drive it. If
your dad is a mechanic, then I would suspect he's going to raise cane
at you for ignoring the light. Should you not know something is wrong,
and by ignoring the light you could be doing more damage to your car?
Check it out before you even attempt to drive it anymore. If it melts
down in the road, your dad is going to know. You sound just like my
son. He won't check anything until it just dies completely, and then he
complains about having to spend more to fix it, than he would have if
he had just fixed it to begin with. I'll bet you would fix your
computer if it was acting up, so why not your transportation? I don't
mean to sound rude, and I'm in no way trying to insult you. I just
think you are not doing your poor car any favors, and your dad may go
off on you.
Glad to add my 2 cents worth!!!
