One of the great advancements in vehicle technology and engineering is the car's ability to give us a heads up when something might be in need of repair. Modern dashboards have a handy little "check engine light" that will illuminate if there is something that requires attention.

When your car's "Check Engine" light comes on, it's usually accompanied by a sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. But in most cases, it means at minimum that you'll be visiting a technician to locate the malfunction and get the light turned off.

Don't Ignore That Light
If your car’s Check Engine Light is on, it means that there’s a problem somewhere in your car’s system and it is advisable to get it diagnosed immediately to avoid any expensive repairs.  Ignoring the Check Engine Light might cause the following problems in your car:

    • You will experience poor performance (reduced power, engine missing)
    • You will experience loss of fuel economy (up to 40% if ignored)
    • You might cause damage to your spark plugs, oxygen sensors and catalytic converter
    • Your vehicle will not pass an emissions test
    • Your car may run at a higher temperature

The above mentioned problem can result in future repairs ranging from 250$ to $1500. Auto Imports can do a free diagnostic scan to identify the fault code and make appropriate recommendations, and fix the issue with repairs or part replacements before it’s too late.  Book your appointment today.
