What Is Your Check Engine Light?
The check engine light might be the most misunderstood indicator on your dashboard. Though you don’t need to pull over to the side of the road and call a two truck when it comes on, you should get your car checked as soon as possible. Ignoring it could end up damaging expensive components, decreasing fuel economy and emitting high levels of pollution. Since the 1980’s computers have controlled engine speed, fuel mixture, and ignition timing. In newer cars, your onboard computer tells the automatic transmission when to shift. When the computer senses a system issue it is unable to correct, it turns on your yellow “check engine,” “service engine soon,” or “check powertrain” light. The computer stores a trouble code that is available to our diagnostic computer when you bring it in. The code allows us to fully diagnose and repair the issue.
Before bringing it in, you might want to try tightening your gas cap. Though it may take a couple of trips for the computer to reset itself, if the light goes off, you have solved your issue! On the other hand, if it does not, we will make sure that bringing your car to us is high-quality and hassle-free.
