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 scan tool or a diagnostic computer to retrieve Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC). Some common issues that turn on the check engine light include:
- Your gas cap isn't on tight enough; we suggest checking before calling us.
- 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.
A check engine light appointment goes pretty fast, so stop by or give us a call.
