ABOUT OUR CHECK ENGINE LIGHT SERVICE
What's included with our Check Engine Light service?
If your check engine light is on or flashing, it’s important to have it checked immediately, both for your peace of mind, and to help avoid costlier repairs down the road.
First, we’ll use advanced diagnostic tools to retrieve any check engine light codes and other performance data from your vehicle's computer, free of charge.
If additional diagnostics are required, our certified experts will let you know of their cost. If you choose to proceed, our next step will be to help:
- Properly determine why your vehicle's check engine light is on
- Develop a service recommendation
- Show you related symptoms and possible causes, and indicate the degree of urgency with which you need to get your vehicle serviced
- Make approved repairs
Why is a check engine light diagnosis important?
Your vehicle provides key information in its dashboard lights. If your check engine light is on, engine diagnostic services can be a useful tool in determining why.
There are a number of possible reasons for an illuminated or flashing check engine light, including the need for regular maintenance, such as an oil change, or because there may be an issue with your braking, electrical, or vehicle computer performance.
How often should I get a Check Engine Light service?
If the check engine light is illuminated, you should bring your vehicle in as soon as possible.
For optimal vehicle safety and reliability, diagnostic checks should be a part of your routine vehicle maintenance, even if your check engine light isn’t on or flashing.
The best adventures are the ones that don’t involve unplanned pit stops to have your car repaired.
Why choose GAS?
Without a state-of the-art diagnostic tool like the ones our certified technicians use to pull and read your vehicle computer’s trouble codes, critical problems can go unnoticed, even by an experienced mechanic.
We’ll take the time to explain your vehicle’s codes and what they mean so you can make confident, informed decisions about what your car needs.
