CHECK ENGINE LIGHT
When your check engine lights comes on, like most of us, you may be torn between utter panic and just wanting to ignore it and hope it goes away. That's perfectly understandable. That same check engine light could come on for anything from a serious engine or transmission problem all the way down to a loose gas cap.
There's a very common misconception that the trouble codes stored in your engine computer when your check engine light comes on will specifically identify a problem. It's really more like pointing to the symptoms of a problem.
The fact is that Electronic diagnostics is not completed solely by a computer. The major work involved is actually conducted by technicians who must make accurate inferences from the data supplied by the vehicle. Once the information from the vehicles computer has been collected, it then falls to the technicians to determine the root cause of the problem. For any given trouble code, there could be a number of causes. And some problems take longer to solve than others.
If your check engine light is flashing it means that the problem could lead to serious damage. You should bring your vehicle in as soon as possible to get the problem solved. If it's on but not flashing, you have some time to get in at your convenience.
Oil Change – Everyone knows that their vehicle will require an oil change from time to time. Most people don’t worry about the reasons why or consider the direct consequences of neglecting this important service. Engine oil is the primary lubricant for the major machinery that drives your vehicle forward. Keeping clean oil at the correct level in your engine takes major strain off your engine and allows it to run more efficiently.
Cooling Systems – the vast majority of engine problems have a direct correlation to overheating. This is because heat makes the inner components of your engine more malleable and less able to handle the strain that occurs with each engine revolution. Considering that you’re your engine makes several thousand revolutions per minute, it is clear that keeping the temperature in check is of major importance.
Fuel systems – though there may be gas in your tank, your engine may have difficulty processing it. Misfires in the fuel system are then delivered to the engine and cause the remaining cylinders to work overtime to compensate. If allowed to go unchecked, this can cause localized problems in the engine and rob you of functionality. The cost effectiveness of opening the engine to replace one small yet vital component is a sad waste of our customer’s dollars.
Belts and Hoses – the best way to stop minor issues from occurring is to make sure that proper attention is allotted to the health of the belts and hoses that keep your engine running. Generally, a visual inspection of the belts and hoses is enough to allow you to stay ahead of the problems, and plan in advance for the day that they need replacement.
