Is your check engine light on?

This has happened a few times in the last week or so, so we wanted to share this tip with you.

Some customers came in to The Shop with a check engine light on. They had been waiting to get it fixed for quite a while because they thought it would be expensive. We pulled the code and found an emissions leak. All they needed was a new fuel cap, a simple and inexpensive solution.

If you have a check engine light on and have not had it checked or fixed yet, come visit us at The Shop. We can look up the code and get you a quote for free. It may not be as bad as you think.

  1. It is really comforting to hear that not all check engine light repairs are expensive. I never would have thought that just getting a new fuel cap would solve the problem. A new fuel cap is definitely a lot cheaper than trying to get your engine repaired. You definitely shouldn’t hesitate about taking your car in for a check up when your check engine light is on.

    It’s so nice that you can use the check engine light on your car to identify the exact problem! It is true that a lot of people avoid car maintenance, especially if they think the repairs will be expensive. However, it is better to have your car inspected sooner rather than later so that you don’t end up damaging your car even more. It just isn’t worth it to wait!
