Check Engine Light
You’re out on the road on a beautiful day in Carroll County, and suddenly your Check Engine light comes on. What do you do?
First of all, don’t panic!
Every car needs regular maintenance and fixes here and there. Your vehicle may just be telling you it’s time for an oil change or that something needs to be serviced. It’s totally normal. Just like we need regular check-ups for our health, your car needs regular tune-ups for its health.
Second of all, don’t ignore it, either!
Although the need for routine maintenance can be expected, it can’t be ignored. It’s best to give us a call and get your vehicle looked at as soon as possible. We’ve seen too many people neglect their check engine lights because they simply didn’t have the time to get to the repair shop, and what was a small issue has then become a massive, expensive repair!
It may seem counterintuitive, but bringing your vehicle in to get routine maintenance regularly is proven to actually save you money in the long run!
Because routine maintenance - things like oil changes, tire rotations, transmission flushes, hose and belt inspections, etc., keep your vehicle running smoothly and are much less expensive than significant repairs. However, when these smaller services are ignored, things in your car begin to break down. Dirt and debris get into your fluids and filters. Belts and hoses wear out (just like the belts on your pants and you house hoses eventually wear out!), and fluids get used up or become thick and sludgy from use.
This is all normal, but when you see people broken down on the side of the highway, it would be a pretty safe assumption that the vehicle wasn’t properly maintained.
