Chevrolet Check Engine Light Diagnosis in Aiken

Check engine light

It’s something every driver dreads: the check engine light. While no one wants to see this indicator light up, it’s an important feature to keep your vehicle running right. It’s just a matter of being able to translate what it’s trying to tell you. Fortunately, the team at our Aiken Chevy service center serving Augusta speaks your car’s language!

Why Your Check Engine Light is On

The honest truth is that your check engine light could be lighting up for a plethora of different reasons. It could be something very simple, or it could be an indicator of something more serious. After all, it could be a loose gas cap or it could be a major problem that needs to be addressed.

The important thing here is that your car is giving you notice that there’s a problem. This is your chance to handle things before it gets more serious! So how do you find out what your car is trying to tell you?

What to Do About It

Start by checking for a few basic issues that could be triggering your check engine light. Take a look to see if everything seems okay at a glance; is the gas cap secure? Are the fluids all at the appropriate levels? Simple things like this can be handled with a trip to our Chevy parts department serving Aiken and Augusta and a few minutes of your time.

If nothing is glaringly obvious, then it’s time to drop by Master Chevrolet. Our expert technicians have the state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment they need to “talk” to your car and find out what’s wrong. Once we do that, we can get things back in order to get you back on the road as soon as possible!

Other Lights on Your Dash

Your vehicle’s lights might different slightly, replacing “check engine” with “service needed” or simply an image of an engine and an exclamation point. Of course, your car also has many other lights to denote issues with the brake system, tires, coolant, or other components. These should all be handled similarly with a trip to the professionals in our shop!
