Computer Diagnostic (Check Engine Light)


Your Check Engine Light (CEL) warns you that your vehicle's computer found a malfunctioning component in your emission control system. You may see "check engine," "service engine soon," or "check powertrain." Or, the light may show an engine picture, perhaps with the word "Check." To determine the actual problem, we use an electronic diagnostic computer to scan and retrieve Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) and then will spend up to an hour having an ASE certified technician pinpointing the issue with your vehicle and writing an estimate.

Some common issues that turn on the check engine light include:

  • The purge vent and canister for your gas tank is plugged up with dirt -this is a common problem in rural areas
  • Bad sensor, bad connection
  • Water got into your engine somewhere
  • The spark plugs don't function correctly
  • Your vehicle is emitting high levels of pollutants

In any case, you should bring your vehicle to us, and we can inspect your vehicle, diagnose the problem, and take care of it. Leaving your engine light on can cause serious problems with your car in the long run. Also, if your check engine light is flashing, you need to pull over and shut your car off immediately.

A check engine light appointment goes pretty fast, so stop by or give us a call.

Proudly serving you since 1994.
