Understanding the Signals

Here are a couple warning lights that you may see and some of the potential causes behind them!

Check Engine Light

A warning signal that many of us know and most of us fear, the check engine light may be the most ambiguous out of all the signals. There are a variety of causes for this warning light, ranging from a loose gas cap to a misfiring engine. Whenever you see this light on, make sure you visit us at your first convenience, unless you see the signal flashing. This indicates something seriously wrong is going on within your vehicle and it will need service as soon as possible to avoid further damage. We recommend getting a tow to our shop!

A variety of reasons can come from that, whether it’s leaking motor oil or you’re in need of an oil change.
