Engine Repair

So you go to start your vehicle, and the Check Engine light on the dashboard is illuminated. You hope it’ll go out on its own…but of course, it doesn’t.

For many drivers, there’s some confusion about the Check Engine light and what it means. Here’s what it comes down to:

Since the early 90s, every vehicle has electronic engine controls that govern ignition timing, fuel delivery, power, fuel economy, transmission shift points, emissions and several other factors. These engine controls use a set of sensors which send readings back to the central drivetrain computer. When the computer registers readings from a sensor that are outside of normal parameters, it will store a trouble code and illuminate the Check Engine lamp. It could be an indicator of something pretty minor, or it could be a sign of something more serious (or even a series of problems occurring at once).

The computer is designed for easy onboard diagnostics; by hooking a code reader/scanner device to the car’s diagnostic connector, a technician can easily access the trouble codes and start to figure out what the problem might be. While trouble codes aren’t the be-all and end-all – a tech has to be able to know what caused the trouble code in the first place – it certainly gives a head start to diagnosis and takes much of the guesswork out of the equation.
