Question

Engine light came on. I'm at about 59k miles. Could this be a minor problem. Don't want to panic and take to the dealership and it's just a service warranty.

    The light is an indicative of a failure in your vehicle's emissions control system. (Check Engine Light article in RepairPal Encyclopedia; http://repairpal.com/check-engine-light)

    Make sure the gas cap is properly tighten. There is a code, recorded in the vehicle's computer right when the light came on. The best practice is to retrieve the code and diagnose the problem.

    Check engine lights can be caused by several if not hundreds of small and or big problems. It is worth getting it checked out to make sure its not something big. But if all the gauges read good and the truck runs well more then most it is just a sensor problem.
