Routine vehicle maintenance is critical. It helps ensure that your vehicle performs the way it’s supposed to; it keeps you safe, and it extends your vehicle’s lifespan. But how can you tell when your car or truck needs a little extra attention? How can you tell when it needs something above and beyond routine oil changes and tire rotations? Generally speaking, your car will tell you what it needs, usually through the Check Engine light. When this light comes on, it means there’s a problem you need to address ASAP. Bring your vehicle into Meineke #871 in Des Plaines, IL, and we’ll help you get to the bottom of things.
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.

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.
