Why not just repair it. Use a code scanner to figure out what's wrong, and replace the faulty part then the check engine light will go off normally. The light is there as a diagnostic tool to tell you that you need to read the computer code and repair the problem. Agree with above. Fix the problem and it may improve your gas mileage. Most likely a O2 Sensor located on the Exhaust manifold before the Catalytic Converter. Go to AutoZone and ask them to run a free scan to see what the code is reading. Fix the problem..don't make it impossible to know when your engine is out of oil by removing the only indicator lamp. Good luck.

How would you know if water pump failed on Chevy Impala?

Without proper water circulation through the engine block the engine will rapidly overheat. The first warning will be the water temp gauge or idiot light, and you will start smelling a strange odor coming from the engine compartment. Stop the motor at once ... have it towed to the nearest garage for repair. Further driving without proper water flow will permanently damage the engine beyond repair.

What does a ticking sound which increases in frequency with increase in speed coming from the engine mean?
