Nobody wants to see the dreaded “check engine light” or “service engine soon”. Often, we hear of our customers ignoring this problem or just unplugging the battery to reset the computer so they don’t have to stare at it all the time. The issue is… it always comes back.
Let the professionals take care of it. We have trained mechanics ready to pull the codes and tell you exactly what is wrong with your car and how to fix it. Please don’t put this off and give us a call.
Question #1) What causes the check engine light to come on?
The check engine light can be as simple as your gas cap is not on properly or something as serious as the catalytic converter. To know for sure, we have a special computer to get specific codes to diagnose the issue.
Question #2) What do I do when I see “check engine light” come on?
Call a mechanic as soon as you get a chance. If you ignore this issue, it will only get worse and could potentially total your vehicle.
Question #3) What is a common reason the check engine light comes on?
A common reason for the “check engine light” to come on that we have seen is a faulty oxygen sensor. To be sure, you need to have someone diagnose your vehicle with a code reader.
