Is your Check Engine light on? Don’t ignore it.
Leaving your engine light on can cause serious problems with your car in the long run. Your vehicle has one check engine light that monitors hundreds of different components. It is best to have a computer diagnostic test run on your vehicle to identify the issue as quickly as possible.
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
- The spark plugs aren’t function correctly
- Your vehicle is emitting high levels of pollutants
We have the equipment to quickly pull the diagnostic codes from your car’s computer.
Our Master Certified ASE technicians will assess which components need attention, and discuss a repair plan with you.

What do I do when my check engine light comes on?
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). We can inspect your vehicle, diagnose the problem, and take care of it.
