Check Engine Light Service

Check Engine Light

Check Engine Light Service in Shelby, NC

When your check engine light is illuminated, the most dangerous thing you can do is ignore it. The check engine light is part of your vehicle’s OBD (onboard diagnostics) system, or essentially, the engine’s computer. When a malfunction occurs within this system, the computer sets a particular code, causing the check engine light to illuminate. The malfunction could be any number of things - the problem could be with emissions, the engine's fuel/air mixture, engine speed, ignition timing, etc. Our dealership's team of certified service professionals can identify and interpret the code for you and then the repair process can begin once the location and reason for the problem have been identified.

Addressing the problem of a check engine light sooner rather than later can prolong the life of your vehicle. By taking care of small problems now, they can prevent bigger, more expensive problems from happening in the future. Even if your car feels fine when you drive it, the problem that the check engine light is indicating could be something that is not felt as a physical symptom when operating the car.

Our GM Certified Service Center

Our service department of highly qualified automotive technicians at our dealership are certified professionals who perform regular maintenance to address check engine light issues. They are specially trained and knowledgeable of all vehicle makes and models. They look forward to servicing your vehicle as quickly and efficiently as possible, to get you back on the road safely.

Our service department also keeps many OEM parts in stock, so there is no waiting game with having the part replaced or repaired. When it comes to repairing a problem indicated by a check engine light, using OEM parts is crucial to ensure the light does not come back on and that the problem will not occur again.

High Quality OEM Parts

Our dealership uses only OEM (original equipment manufacturer) parts to service your vehicle. At independent shops, they likely use aftermarket parts, which are very different from OEM parts. OEM parts are beneficial because they are sourced directly from the manufacturer - for instance, Toyota OEM parts are sourced directly from Toyota - which means there is no guessing game involved with having to assess quality or prices. The new OEM part that our technicians will install will fit exactly the same and operate exactly the same as the old part did. It will fit without any special attachments because it is the part that the vehicle was originally manufactured with. Its quality and performance will be the same as before.

Aftermarket parts, on the other hand, vary greatly in quality, the selection of them can be overwhelming, and they are often not backed by a warranty. OEM parts installed at our dealership are backed by the manufacturer's warranty, typically for a year after installation, although this varies by brand.
