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 #19 in Baytown, TX, 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. The Check Engine light will also trigger a diagnostic code, which spells out the problem in greater detail. Our technicians at Meineke #19 in Baytown, TX 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 illumination of your Check Engine light could point to a wide range of issues. Sometimes, it’s simple and easy—a crack in your gas cap, for instance. In other cases, though, it might denote a more serious problem with your transmission, with your electrical system, or with another core automotive component. You need to have the problem diagnosed quickly so that the proper maintenance can be performed. This, in turn, will keep the issue from getting worse.
