What Do I Do If My Check Engine Light Turns On?

We understand that dreadful feeling when you notice that a warning light has illuminated on your vehicle’s dashboard. Although some lights can indicate a specific problem area, such as the battery or TPMS light, the check engine light can turn on based on a number of different issues. As soon as you notice a warning light turn on, we recommend bringing your vehicle into our experts here at Lorentz Automotive in Lewisville, TX, as soon as possible.

The check engine light is an indication that there is a problem with a major component in your vehicle. Aside from the check engine light turning on, have you noticed any issues with your vehicle, such as a strange noise, weird smell, or a lack in performance? When you come into our shop, be sure to note any symptoms that you may be experiencing. Our team will evaluate those symptoms and determine what the problem may be. 

Your vehicle has a complex computer system that is connected to sensors throughout your vehicle. When your vehicle’s check engine light has turned on, it means that a signal has been sent to your computer that something is amiss and that it’s time for an engine diagnostic. Our experts have the knowledge and the tools for both major and minor engine repair and will help get you back on the road quickly and safely. 

Keep an eye out for the following symptoms:

  • Decreased gas mileage
  • Engine stalls
  • Lack of power/performance
  • Rough running engine

If you notice any of the problems listed above and a warning light has turned on, it’s time to have your vehicle inspected. A problem with your vehicle’s engine can become worse over time if ignored and can ultimately turn a quick fix into an expensive repair. Be aware of any noises, smells, or changes in performance with your vehicle. If you ever notice something out of the ordinary, be sure to jot it down and give us a call. 

Your vehicle’s engine should be kept in top working condition at all times to ensure your safety and the integrity of your vehicle.
