Check Engine Light Diagnostics for Cars, Trucks, & SUVs

Your vehicle’s dashboard is filled with many color-coded warning lights to alert you of various things going on with your car. All of them indicate a warning of some kind. It could be something as simple as reminding you to fasten your seatbelt or letting you know a door is ajar, while others, such as the Check Engine Light (CEL), require the assistance of a skilled mechanic. At Hewlett House of Tires, Tire Pros in New York, we offer complete Check Engine Light diagnostics to determine what caused the light to come on and the proper repairs to have your vehicle running properly again.

Why Is My Check Engine Light On?

This is a question asked by every vehicle owner at least once while owning a car, truck, or SUV. Modern vehicles are equipped with computer systems connected to various parts of the engine. When one of these parts fails or isn’t operating as it’s supposed to, it sends a signal to the computer telling it to turn on the Check Engine Light, so you are aware something needs attention. At our repair shop, we have diagnostic equipment that will pull the code from the car’s computer and tell us exactly what caused the light to turn on. It can be something as simple as a loose gas cap to something more serious. Common causes include:

  • Loose or Broken Gas Caps
  • Oxygen Sensors
  • Catalytic Converter
  • Mass Airflow Sensors
  • Engine Misfiring
  • And More

Driving around with a loose gas cap isn’t going to cause significant damage to your car. However, if something else is responsible for activating your Check Engine Light, it’s essential to have that fixed right away. Any of the other reasons it might be on can result in higher emission output, reduced gas mileage, or damage to engine parts. If your CEL has come on, schedule an appointment at Hewlett House of Tires, Tire Pros in New York as soon as possible for an accurate diagnosis by our trained technicians. We will explain what is going on with your vehicle and the repairs we can provide to correct the problem.
