Check Engine Light Services
Everyone gets that sudden stomach drop when their Check Engine Light comes on. But it’ll be ok. Sometimes, it can only mean that your gas cap is loose or a sensor is failing. However, other, more serious issues can arise as well. It’s never a good idea to ignore a Check Engine Light (CEL) warning. If left untreated, it can lead to severe issues that require expensive repairs or rebuilds in your car. Here at Casey’s Tire Pros and Automotive, we have years of experience working on all types and sizes of engines. We’ll correctly identify the reason your CEL is on with our state-of-the-art diagnostics and code reader technology. Contact us as soon as possible to schedule maintenance on your car. We proudly serve Greensboro, NC and the surrounding areas. If your CEL is flashing, immediately pull over. Your vehicle has a severe issue that could cause immediate, irreparable damage. Paying for a tow service is always more affordable than rebuilding your engine.
Most Common Reasons CEL Is On
An illuminated Check Engine Light can mean many things. It takes a special code reader to be plugged into the car’s computer to find out the reason. Once we do that, we can get a better idea of what your car needs. Here are the most common reasons the CEL in your vehicle may be on:
- Damaged, loose, or missing gas cap
- Failed oxygen sensors
- Failed or missing catalytic converter
- Faulty mass airflow sensor or intake tract
- Misfires, including ignition coil, fuel injectors, vacuum leaks, worn spark plugs, bad compression
