Quick Diagnoses & Complete Repairs
When your dashboard light first pops on, it will be a solid red/orange. This is an early alert that gives you enough time visit our shop or schedule an appointment. When owners wait too long to receive service, the check engine light will start to blink. This is an example of waiting until it’s “too late.” This means the vehicle is about to break down completely. You could easily end up on the side of the road if you’re too far from our shop. The check engine light is not something that you want to play with. While it may seem like the vehicle is operating fine, no one knows what’s happening under the hood, or to other vehicle components. Continuing to drive with a check engine light will end up doing extensive and expensive damages to your vehicle’s systems.
