Every vehicle owner wants to extend their car’s engine life for as long as possible—and to ensure optimal performance along the way. To meet those goals, consistent automotive maintenance is required. Sometimes, that’s as simple as getting the wheels aligned, the fluids checked, and the oil changed. In other cases, though, your engine may have more serious issues that require a more complex repair. Fortunately, your vehicle will let you know when this is the case, specifically through the display of its Check Engine light. In order to have your engine needs diagnosed and corrected, visit our techs at Meineke #1818 in Altoona, PA.
The Check Engine light is your car’s way of telling you when it needs a little extra TLC—when there’s something the matter with it, something that goes beyond that routine maintenance. While the problem may be fairly minor, it could also be major—and in any case, it’s good to get the issue fixed sooner rather than later. At Meineke #1818 in Altoona, PA, we can run the tests required to diagnose the problem and point you toward the necessary repairs. More often than not, we can handle all those repairs right here in our service center, getting your car back to working as good as new!
But what are some of the possible reasons for your engine lights to come on? It could be any range of things. In some cases, the underlying issue is something that’s fairly simple and easy to repair. It may be something like a broken gas cap. In other cases, though, the problem may be something pretty serious—for instance, a malfunction with your transmission. The only way to know for sure what’s going on with your car is to have that Check Engine light interpreted by a trained diagnostician. That’s a service we can offer here at Meineke #1818 in Altoona, PA.
But when you bring your vehicle in for a diagnostic test, our technicians can run a few tests to get you clear, straightforward answers. Usually, the Check Engine light will give a diagnostic code.

Then, we can provide you with the next steps that need to be taken in order to fix the problem and keep your engine running the way it’s supposed to.
