DOES THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT MAGICALLY TELL YOU WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOUR CAR?
I’ll let you in on a little secret. If you’re “Check Engine” light is on, you can take it to many auto parts stores and they’ll tell you what the trouble code is for FREE! The only problem with that is the inevitable question: “Now what?”
Let me give you an example: Let’s say they plug their code reader into your car and it gives them a code DTC P0401 which means “insufficient EGR system flow.” OK, but what is causing it? It could be a bad EGR valve, a clogged EGR passage or a faulty DPFE sensor. That code reader won’t tell you any of those things. It takes a trained ASE technician to test for each potential problem. That way you get your car fixed right the first time and you don’t waste money and time buying and replacing parts.
We are experts at diagnosing what’s wrong with your car. So when you’re light comes on, don’t take it to the parts store, Take it 2 the House!
