“Check Engine” Light Diagnostics

Check Engine Light

Your vehicle’s Check Engine Light lets you know when a problem has occurred in the engine control system, but the light can mean many different things from a loose gas cap to a seriously misfiring engine. Depending on the nature of the problem, some problems will cause the Check Engine Light to come on only when the fault is occurring while other types of problems will turn the Check Engine Light on, and it will stay on until the problem is found and repaired.

If your Check Engine Light turns on, you should take your vehicle to a Certified Technician at Bobby & Steve’s Auto World to have it checked as soon as possible. If you ignore the warning, you could end up damaging very important and expensive parts of your vehicle. It could also mean that your vehicle is emitting high levels of pollutants or that your vehicle is getting poor fuel economy.
