Check Engine Light

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

Modern cars are complex from a mechanical and electronics standpoint that it makes your head spin. Vehicles have several networked computers controlling most of the engine and other vehicle functions .

Your car's on-board computer is capable of running self-diagnostics and reading whether its systems are operating within parameters. If it detects a malfunction, it will trigger the check engine light. 

Many car-owners do not realize that in attempt to have their car smog-tested while the check engine light is illuminated, you will be issued a test failure. Spare yourself from paying for multiple inspection fees by having your check-engine light problem taken care of first.

 

WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU?

We are equipped with scanners compatible for most vehicles 1985 and newer. These scanners can read diagnostic trouble codes and other recorded data that will indicate the problems that are hindering your engine's performance.

Bare in mind, the retrieval of data on your car's on-board computer is the first step in resolving your check engine light. It simply provides us a symptom of a cause - from which we will preform a series of diagnostic procedures to isolate.

Once we have a complete understanding of the problem, we will explain to you the necessary repairs. You may find the cost worth your while or not. Our aim is to enable you with your options - in order for you to make an informed decision. '
