We access your onboard computer and can quickly acquire the reason your engine light is being displayed. Although there is a long list of possible problems your vehicle may be experiencing, below is just a short list that may have caused your check engine light to activate:
- Your gas cap is loose
- Misfiring Cylinder(s)
- Problem with the Mass Airflow (MAF) sensor or circuit
- Insufficient (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) EGR flow
- Low catalyst system efficiency
- Oxygen sensor is malfunctioning
- Engine is running too lean or too rich
- Knock sensor circuit is malfunctioning

If you want to get the most out of your automobile, do the scheduled mileage maintenance (timing belt, water pump, spark plugs, etc.). On the timing belt service, if the belt were to fail during a loaded condition that would require higher RPMs or driving at higher speeds it could damage the motor. The water pump moves coolant through the engine keeping it at the proper running temperature. The water pump is like the heart of the motor, if driven overheated it can cause extensive damage to the cylinder heads and motor. The timing belt and water pump maintenance is suggested by the dealer to prevent above problems as they can be costly repairs especially considering the much lower cost of the suggested maintenance.
