Check Engine Light
Top-of-the-Line Engine Diagnostics
When your check engine light comes on, it can be a scary situation, but A&J Automotive can help. Our qualified technicians are experienced with virtually every make and model, so we have what it takes to get your check engine light properly diagnosed. Even if your vehicle isn’t experiencing noticeable symptoms, the light can be causing further damage that can result in more costly automotive repairs.
Diagnosing a Check Engine Light
Many shops don’t have the proper equipment to diagnose a check engine light. When you go to these shops, they have a scan tool that can pull the code that is triggering the light, but it doesn’t give them all of the information. For example, it may tell them that the vehicle is running lean, but it does not tell them which of the many parts in the vehicle is causing it.
Our skilled technicians know how to pull the codes and find out exactly what’s causing it. Our goal is to fix it right the first time so the light doesn’t come back on within a few days of you leaving our shop. We also have one of the best warranties around to back our work. Any repairs we do will be covered for 3 years/36,000 miles.
The Check Engine Light problems
Sometimes a check engine light can be something as simple as a gas cap being left loose, so the system sees that there is an emission leak. Other times there may be a sensor or other problem that doesn’t seem to be causing an issue, but the reality is that your vehicle is not running properly. When the check engine light comes on, the vehicle begins to try to compensate for whatever problem it is having. Most of the time, the air to fuel mixture is affected when the light comes on, so your vehicle is using much more gas than it should be.
Passing Smog and more Severe Issues
If you’re having difficulties passing smog, we can repair whatever issue is causing the light. It’s also possible that the check engine light is coming on for a more severe issue that doesn’t have much to do with emissions some situations. It can also be a sign that you’re having issues with your transmission or engine itself. When this light comes on, don’t risk further damaging your vehicle.
