The check engine light is one of the most important yet often ignored elements of your car. That yellow light isn’t there just to annoy you, it’s actually trying to transmit an important message — if you actually bother to pay attention that is.
A wide variety of things can cause your check engine light to illuminate. These can range from a simple loose cap to a total misfire. It’s worth noting that the check engine light isn’t a red alert and you don’t have to immediately slam on the breaks then proceed to call a tow truck.
All the check engine light is telling you is that you should, well, get your engine checked as soon as possible. It’s worth noting that your car computer will log what the trigger was so that, when you do get your car serviced, the auto mechanics servicing it will know what the issue is.
Our maintenance shop specializes in repairing the malfunctions that enable your check engine light as well as other forms of diagnostics.
If you want to ensure that your car will always run at optimal condition, even after 200,000 miles, be sure to take her to us for a thorough checkup and tuning.
