The check engine warning light exists to help you identify when something is wrong with your car, so the issue doesn’t get out of control. If your valve rocker arms are calling in sick to work, then your engine won’t get the proper ratio of air to fuel, which will likely trigger the warning light.
Know that sluggish feeling when you've eaten too much? Well, your car behaves the same way. It needs the proper ratio of air to fuel in order perform properly. The valves are responsible for that. When the valve rocker arms fail, the function of the valves will likely be messed up, which leads to improper amounts of fuel and air. Your engine will then start acting up. You might notice your car has less power than it normally does, or maybe it hesitates or jerks when you try and accelerate.
It goes without saying, mysterious noises coming from your engine are bad. When the valve rocker arms begin to go, you’ll hear some unfamiliar noises coming from your car’s drivetrain. Don’t just turn up the music and pretend you can’t hear the noises.Get a Quote 1-Year | 12,000-Mile Warranty
