Check Engine Lights

Check Engine Light Scan and Diagnostics

Check Engine LightIt is easy to simply ignore the check engine light on your vehicle’s dashboard. Most of us are guilty of doing so at one point or another. However, that little light was designed to warn the driver of many problems the engine may be experiencing. If the check engine light is currently on, it is important to have an expert technician from Liberty Auto Center perform a diagnostic test. With the test complete, our service providers can better understand the problem you are experiencing.

We can provide you with potential solutions to any engine problem your vehicle may be experiencing. Some solutions could be an easy fix, while others may require a bit more time and investment to repair. Whatever the problem, our auto engine light check service offers quality, affordability, and timely repairs.

What is a Check Engine Diagnostics Test?

A check engine test is quick and easy. A computer scanner is connected to your vehicle’s own computer system in order to identify which area of the vehicle caused the check engine light to turn on. This test can indicate issues with your engine, transmission, exhaust, brakes, cooling system, and more.

It’s important to note that a check engine test cannot diagnose the specific reason why the indicated system is failing. It can only guide the technician toward the source of the issue. From there it’s up to them to run tests of their own in order to find a solution for the vehicle’s problem.

Why Is A Check Engine Test Important?

People tend to ignore a check engine light until something goes wrong with their vehicle. This can wind up putting them or others in danger, causing expensive damage to their vehicle, or shortening the vehicle’s lifespan. It’s important to run a diagnostic test as soon as possible so that your car or truck is there for you when you need it.

Your vehicle may be running perfectly fine and you may think bringing it into the shop to have your check engine light looked at is a hassle, but in the end it can wind up being much more of a hassle for you if you don’t have it looked at.

What is My Check Engine Light Telling Me?

There are a number of reasons why your check engine light might turn on. It can mean something small and easy to fix, such as a loose or damaged gas cap, or something big, like a misfiring engine that may eventually fail. Other reasons include a bad catalytic converter, an oxygen sensor or mass airflow sensor that needs to be replaced, faulty spark plugs or spark plug wires, a leak in the vacuum system, a dying battery, or even issues with an aftermarket alarm system.
