Check Engine Light
Check Engine Light in Colorado Springs, CO
Professional Check Engine Light Diagnostics
While most people can recognize the check engine light when it pops up on their dashboard, even we will admit it is a very vague suggestion to take your car in for a check-up. Is it a loose gas cap, or is the engine about to fall out from under the hood? Will I make it another 10 miles or another 1,000 miles? At Auto Clinic, we know at the very least that light means your vehicle isn’t working to its full potential. At the worst, without immediate attention, it could mean engine failure. Taking the chance that it isn’t a serious issue isn’t worth the risk. Preventing emergency repairs is the primary function of vehicle alerts like the check engine light.
What Can It Mean?
In many instances, the check engine light will indicate an issue that has the potential to hurt vehicle performance. If it is an issue with the airflow throughout the vehicle, this could require a look at your oxygen sensor or bad mass airflow sensor. Airflow affects both the cooling of your engine and the environment in the cabin of your vehicle. For the engine, this can affect performance. For the cabin, that can affect your safety. Many electrical elements could also trip the check engine light if they require repair. A faulty ignition coil or spark plug could require changing to restore full function to your engine. Another option is the catalytic converter, which often develops faults if the exhaust is laden with gas or oil. Our technicians will diagnose the issue and bring you options for repairs or services to get your vehicle in working order again.
