Is your car’s “Check Engine” light on? Is the engine making strange noises? The Garage Auto Repair can quickly and precisely diagnose your car or truck’s engine problems, as well as correctly find the root cause for the Check Engine light being on.
Modern-day vehicles come with highly-advanced electronic engine control systems – the computer gets data from a network of switches and sensors that change its operating settings into electrical signals.
The commands sent to the three key systems are based on the stored instructions and information inside the computer program. These key systems include:
- Emission control system
- Fuel system
- Ignition system
Failure in any of these system can result in the “check engine” light to come on. The Car Care Council estimates that 85 percent of all vehicles have their check engine light on or some type of safety issue like:
- Loose gas cap
- Poor emissions
- Worn out spark plug
- Cracked hoses/belts
- Low transmission fluid
- Broken light for license plate
In order to find out what the problem is when the check engine light is on, your vehicle’s On-Board Diagnostics connector must be hooked up to a code reader or scan tool. This connector is generally found under the dashboard on the driver’s side.
From a steady “check engine” light and noises to stalls and reduced performance, our mechanics have the know-how to accurately diagnose and fix engine problems.
