1998 Mitsubishi Montero mileage: 42000. I was driving my Montero today and the "Check Engine" light came on. I checked the engine over and found no problem. It wasn't overheating, it had plenty of oil and antifreeze, the oil pressure was okay, and there was no visible problem. Do you have any idea what would cause the light to come on and stay on? Any suggestions?

The check engine light will light when there is a malfunction in the engine management system. The fault code is then stored in the computer. The computer must be scanned to retrieve these stored faults to pinpoint the malfunctioning component. Because the check engine light indicates something is wrong, a trip to you neighborhood automobile service center sooner rather than later is recommended.
