What if my "check engine" light comes on?

Advice from The Stuart Transmission Repair Shop: A One

The dreaded "Check Engine" Light comes on… that’s the last thing you want to see on your dashboard isn’t it? Let's consider this… If that light didn’t come on you could have more serious problems with your powertrain than if it didn’t come on because it alerts you to something that could develop into something more serious. We all have thought I am just going to ignore it or if it goes out you feel relieved. Well, unless it’s the gas cap that caused this alert it’s best to get your car in for inspection and a diagnostic check at a mechanic you trust. "Trust" being the key word here. Call our shop for a recommendation of trustworthy general repair shops in our area.

Your auto repair shop will take the your automobile and diagnose the alerts by pulling codes from your PCM or Power-Train Control Unit and this most likely give you the problem within your vehicle’s system. The Power-train control module is connected to several sensors located around the car and within its system like a network of little system checkers all reporting to the main brain that everything is okay or there is a problem.

If the diagnosis is the Transmission, you should take your automobile to a well trained, experienced and reputable transmission repair shop where they will further diagnose the problem and replace or repair the parts inside your transmission to prevent complete and costly failure. Sometimes it may just be a leak or a minor adjustment which is far better than to rebuild or replace your transmission.

This is why it is important to have a transmission shop and auto repair shop you know you can trust. The problem and only the problem will be fixed, and you will prevent something worse from happening down the road.
