Check engine light
Every vehicle manufactured since 1996 is equipped with an On-Board Diagnostics System that monitors engine performance and reports any discrepancies through the vehicle's computer system. When the "check engine" or "service engine" light is illuminated, it is crucial to promptly seek engine diagnostic service or an engine tune-up. Engine diagnostics provide valuable insights into the operating condition of your engine, helping us determine the necessary extent of engine repairs. The most common diagnostic trouble codes are generated in response to powertrain malfunctions. Regular engine tune-ups are essential for optimizing engine performance and preventing unexpected engine issues. During a tune-up, our expert staff may replace spark plugs, spark plug wires, air filters, fuel filters, distributor caps, and rotors in your vehicle. Additionally, we will check emission levels, fuel lines, belts, and hoses. Engine diagnostics and regular tune-ups significantly contribute to extending the life of your vehicle and improving engine health.
While regular engine maintenance plays a vital role in maintaining peak engine performance, there are also signs that indicate the need for engine repair services. The illumination of the "check engine" or "service engine" light is a clear indication that your engine should be examined by a professional without delay. In most cases, your vehicle's On-Board Diagnostics System will detect engine issues and store corresponding repair codes, which can be accessed by our service staff. Slow cranking, rough idling, stalling, knocking, or pinging during acceleration are all signs that prompt engine repairs or diagnostics to determine the full extent of the engine trouble. Decreased gas mileage and noticeable power loss during acceleration are also indicators of an impending engine tune-up or repair service. Engine warning lights serve as early alerts for minor issues before they develop into major repairs. Be sure to follow up with our staff once your vehicle's On-Board Diagnostics System detects a problem with your engine.
