Identifying the Problem
The check engine light (CEL), also known as the service engine soon (SES) light, is a dashboard warning indicator that illuminates when your vehicle’s computer system detects a problem. At times, it could be something minor, while at other times, it could indicate a more severe issue with your car. This is where check engine light diagnostics come in – enabling us to identify any issues plaguing your automobile. We specialize in check engine light diagnostics at Muffler Man Mechanical in Grande Prairie, AB, CA. Our shop is at 9455 116 Street, Grande Prairie, AB T8V 6S7, just south of Costco.
Common Problems with CEL
When your check engine light comes on, it is the first sign that something is wrong with your vehicle. With so many components in modern cars, the check engine light can indicate anything from a loose gas cap to a malfunctioning oxygen sensor or a problem with your car’s transmission. Ignoring this warning light is never advisable, as it could cause severe damage to your car’s system, and the longer you wait, the more expensive the repair bills could be. Some of the common issues that we have come across while performing check engine light diagnostics include:
- Oxygen sensor issues
- Catalytic converter failure
- Loose gas cap
- Malfunctioning mass air flow (MAF) sensor
- Bad spark plugs or plug wires
- Failing ignition coils
- Transmission problems
- Dead battery
