Our technicians are trained to diagnose and fix the problem. We service the areas of Philadelphia, Darby, Collingdale, Sharon Hills, and Glenolden.

Check Engine Light Diagnosis in Philadelphia

When you bring in your vehicle for a check engine light diagnostic test, our technician will perform a test using equipment connected to your vehicle's computer. It will view diagnostic codes that will give the technician a general idea of where the problem lies. They will physically inspect the vehicle to see if the computer test matches what they found. They may test certain components or parts of the vehicle to narrow the cause down. After they find the problem, they will suggest repairs and give you an estimate. When the repair work is done, they will test the vehicle again.

They use a special computer scanning tool, and it may take time and extensive testing to determine the cause of the check engine light on the dashboard. We may be able to clear the codes because it is caused by minor electrical problems or a missing gas cap. Other times it may be a minor or more serious repair. There are many different reasons the check engine light comes on. Call for an appointment or come in to check this out. Don't ignore a check engine light that's on.

Causes of Check Engine Lights Coming On

A faulty oxygen sensor that tests the oxygen in the exhaust system might fail and maintains the air to fuel mixture in your vehicle. Only when it fails will you know, because the check engine light comes on. Another sign is that you are using more gas than usual. This is an easy repair and should be done to avoid problems with the catalytic converter. The airflow sensor may be bad. This device measures airflow that leads to adjustments in the engine. A faulty airflow sensor can lead to stalling, idling, and using too much fuel. The problem might be worn spark plugs that are corroded or dirty, and without any working spark plugs, the engine won't run.
