ENGINE SERVICE LIGHTS
The "check engine" light is an indicator on a vehicle's dashboard that alerts the driver to a potential issue with the engine or emissions system. When the light is illuminated, it is important to have the vehicle diagnosed by a qualified mechanic to determine the cause of the problem.
The cause of the check engine light can vary, ranging from minor issues such as a loose gas cap or a faulty sensor to more serious problems like a malfunctioning catalytic converter or engine misfire. Ignoring the check engine light can lead to further damage to the vehicle and potentially more costly repairs down the line.
If the check engine light comes on, it is best to take the vehicle to a qualified mechanic or auto repair shop as soon as possible for proper diagnosis and repair. At Central Tire also offer diagnostic services, where we can scan the vehicle's computer system to retrieve the error code and help determine the cause of the issue.
