When you see the check engine light, or “Malfunction Indicator Lamp” (MIL), is lit up on your dashboard, bring your vehicle in to Evans Automotive for engine diagnostics and repair. An illuminated check engine light means your vehicle’s system has detected a problem.
Is your Check Engine Light On?
The computer that controls your engine and associated systems is constantly monitoring how your engine is running. When the computer senses the engine, one of its components or a sensor is not operating as it should, it records the information and illuminates the warning lamp to alert the driver.
Trained Engine Mechanics and Professional Equipment
In order to understand the problem and how it may affect your vehicle’s performance, we connect a professional scanning tool to the vehicle. Our mechanics will then analyze the readout and may recommend further diagnosis and testing needed to identify and correct the issue.
While a check engine light is often simply an indication of a minor problem, the only way to know for sure is to have an experienced auto mechanic assist with the diagnosis.
Reasons for Check Engine Light
There are many common reasons for the check engine light to come on in your car or truck. The issue can be as simple as a loose gas cap, or may be related to dirty spark plugs or or fouled fuel injectors. An illuminated check engine light can also signal the failure of an engine sensor such as the oxygen sensor, throttle position sensor or manifold absolute pressure sensor. Other problems in the emissions control system such as the EGR valve or catalytic converter can also trigger an engine warning.
