Check Engine Light Diagnostic and Repair Services

The check engine light, also known as the malfunctioning indicator lamp, is one of the most misunderstood indicators on your dashboard. It can come on with no warning and no explanation. This indicator light can come on for any car problem from a loose gas cap to a seriously misfiring engine. It can also be a sign that your car is getting poor fuel economy and emitting higher levels of pollutants as would be the case with a failure of one or more oxygen sensors. It can also mean that the indicator itself is malfunctioning and that there is nothing wrong with the vehicle.

A solid glowing malfunction indicator lamp could indicate an easy-to-fix problem. Your vehicle could require a simple adjustment or a replacement part. Driving long distances with this light activated could result in a larger problem down the road.

If your check engine light is flashing, it could be a potentially dangerous issue, and you should not drive the vehicle and have it towed to the nearest auto repair shop. It is safest for you to learn what is going on with your vehicle sooner rather than later so that you can take the necessary measures to fix the issue.

When your check engine light comes on, bring your vehicle to Buzz’s Automotive, and we’ll help you determine the problem and the potential solution.
