How do you know when your car is in trouble? When your vehicle engine is in need of some TLC? Often, you don’t—so thankfully, your car will actually tell you. That’s what the Check Engine light is all about. When you see that light illuminated, it’s because your vehicle needs something—something above and beyond the typical oil change/tire rotation maintenance. And the only way to tell exactly what it needs is to have some diagnostic tests run. That’s something our experts can help you with, right here at Meineke #4129 in Aliso Viejo, CA.
What causes the Check Engine light to come on, exactly? It could be any number of serious issues with your engine, and it’s typically something that needs to be addressed sooner rather than later.

Our technicians at Meineke #4129 in Aliso Viejo, CA can run the tests needed to decipher that code. We can then tell you exactly what’s wrong with your engine. And, we can advise you on the steps you need to take to have the problem addressed. Usually, we can do all the repairs right here in our service center.
