These are some of the most common dashboard warning lights.

Engine Temperature Warning Light

A symbol that resembles a thermometer floating in water indicates an overheating of the engine. When this light turns on, you should immediately stop the car and pull over to the side of the road, as ignoring it could lead to engine damage.

Engine Oil Pressure Warning Light

A symbol that resembles an oil can leaking a drop of oil indicates that there is not enough oil in the engine. When this light turns on, be sure to schedule a Randallstown, MD oil change at Exclusive Motorcars.
