Did Your Dashboard Alert Come On?
If your vehicle’s check engine light came on, it’s no time to panic. This is typically an early warning that something strange is happening under the hood, or is about to happen. That’s why timing is everything when it comes to your check engine light repair. Wait too long and you and your vehicle could end up on the side of the road. Dave’s Lamont Street Auto Repair in San Diego, CA has years of experience servicing check engine lights for all models of cars, trucks, and SUVs. The initial alert will be a solid red/orange light on the dashboard. These can happen for small issues like oxygen sensor malfunction (also known as your MAF sensors) or even a loose gas cap, to something more serious like a catalytic converter issue. While this may be annoying, it should not be ignored. Your vehicle will typically continue to drive without any other warning signs, like strange noises, smoke, or odors. You should not take this to mean that your check engine light is not serious. The only way to determine how serious your check engine light is, is with one of our accurate engine diagnostic services.
