COVID-19: Contact your local Meineke for information on enhanced safety measures
What can vehicle owners do to extend the lifespan of their car or truck, and to ensure optimal engine performance at every step of the way? The most important thing is to keep up with automotive maintenance. That means getting regular oil changes, alignments, and tire rotations. It also means paying attention to your engine diagnostics, and in particular to the Check Engine light. If this light comes on, it means there’s something that’s gone wrong with your car. To have the problem diagnosed and then the appropriate repairs made, bring your car into Meineke #437 in Groton, CT, where our diagnostic ream is standing by.
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. The Check Engine light will also trigger a diagnostic code, which spells out the problem in greater detail. Our technicians at Meineke #437 in Groton, CT 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.
The Check Engine light could denote a wide range of issues. Sometimes, it’s something simple; it may be that your fuel cap is cracked, an easy problem to fix. In other cases, though, the Check Engine light denotes something far more serious—potentially a problem with your transmission, or with the electrical system. You don’t want to leave these problems unaddressed for too long, as they will typically worsen with time. That’s why it’s so important to make an appointment at Meineke #437 in Groton, CT whenever that light comes on.
So if your Check Engine light ever does come on, bring it in to our techs. We’ll first run the diagnostic code, and confirm the underlying issue. Then, we’ll conduct any other tests that are needed—whether that means an actual road test of just a visual inspection. Then, we’ll let you know what kind of maintenance or repairs are needed. And, we’ll handle the work right here in Meineke #437 in Groton, CT—getting you back on the road as quickly as possible!
