Elusive Check Engine Light? We’ll Take Care of the Diagnostics.
When your vehicle’s check engine light illuminates, the underlying cause may feel elusive. That’s because this malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) warning is not triggered by a single cause.

Diagnostic Practices and Common Causes
Since the lit check engine light can result from various causes, it’s important to make an accurate identification. After all, you certainly wouldn’t want to make random repairs hoping to eventually fix the problem. When you entrust your automobile to us, an experienced mechanic will connect your computer equipment to your vehicle’s OBD-II port to obtain a trouble code. This code specifies the issue’s category, telling us where to look. However, it does not always pinpoint the exact issue. That’s where expertise matters. Technicians then use their experience to narrow down the overarching area to a specific component. Our staff can do that no matter what make or model you drive. Underlying causes that trigger the check engine light vary from very simple to major. For instance, the light may result from nothing more than a loose or poorly fitting gas cap. The problem can also be an ailing component, such as bad spark plugs, aging spark plug wires, and failing sensors (air and/or mass airflow). In a few cases, the issue can be more complicated than in the case of an expired catalytic converter.
