Your Check Engine Light is On
While an illuminated check engine light could mean something as simple as a loose gas cap, it could also be a sign of engine malfunction. If your check engine light is blinking or on, we suggest coming in for a quick diagnostic test. Our diagnostics system will thoroughly check your vehicle’s entire system and determine if the culprit is in your engine or elsewhere.
