1996 dreaded check engine light


Vehicle Information: Year: 1996; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 69000;

I have had the misfortune of selling my 95 993 to upgrade to a 96 993. The 1996 car I bought was a trade in at the Austin, Tx Mercedes dealer and 100 miles into my ownership the Check Engine light came on. My mechanic, Jones Autowerks, in San Antonio, says that it is the same problem as mentioned in your 1995 vs 1996 vs 1997 993 answer. My question is what, if any, harm is there in just ignoring the light. Texas has no pollution control inspection requirements.
