Your check engine light is on... but what does it mean?

Mechanical Repair

Check Engine Light

Appointment Required

When your car’s check engine light appears, it’s a signal from your car’s engine computer that something is wrong. The light could be a minor issue, such as a faulty gas cap, or it could be more serious, such as a misfiring engine. In all cases, it’s best to get it checked out as soon as possible. Our automotive repair experts will identify the issue and tell you exactly what’s needed to ensure your vehicle is running in tip top shape.

More information about your check engine light

Driving with the check engine light on can be risky depending on the underlying issue causing the light to illuminate. Here are some factors to consider:

Severity of the issue: The check engine light can come on for various reasons, ranging from minor issues like a loose gas cap to more serious problems like engine misfires or sensor failures. If the light is flashing, it typically indicates a more severe problem that requires immediate attention.

Vehicle performance: Pay attention to how your vehicle is running. If you notice any unusual symptoms such as rough idling, poor acceleration, or unusual noises, it’s best to have your vehicle inspected as soon as possible.

Warranty and emissions testing: Some states require vehicles to pass emissions testing, and a lit check engine light will typically result in a failed inspection. Additionally, if your vehicle is still under warranty, driving with the check engine light on could potentially void the warranty coverage for certain issues.

Diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs): If possible, use an OBD-II scanner to retrieve the diagnostic trouble codes associated with the check engine light. These codes can provide more insight into the specific problem affecting your vehicle.

In general, it’s best to have your vehicle inspected by a qualified mechanic as soon as possible when the check engine light comes on. Ignoring the warning light could lead to more significant and costly repairs down the road, or even compromise your safety while driving.

My wife and I have been bringing our vehicle here for oil changes, we recently brought it in for a brake service. The mechanics were knowledgeable and the staff were friendly. Shuttle service was efficient and well communicated with text notifications. The owner was also running the front of the mechanic shop as it is a family run business. We had a great conversation and he was very friendly. Would recommend their services - support local!

My thanks to Kurt at the 200 183 highway 16a location in spruce grove. I discovered a leaking oil filter that was in stalled by my chev dealership. I was heading out hunting at the time but apparently that dealership didn’t have the 5 min to help me out. I pulled into the the econolube, explained the situation and “bam” Done at very reasonable price. Not to mention the pleasant attitude and willingness to help. Thanks again Kurt. Sorry if the spelling of your name is incorrect.

My car needed some repairs, and based on my past excellent experiences with Econolube for oil changes and tire service, I booked it in with them for mechanical service this time. I've had 2 appointments over the last 2 weeks to get everything fixed, and they've been fantastic to deal with. Booking the appointments has been super easy, communication with Reuben before and during the service has been great, and pricing is incredibly reasonable. They do not try to upsell on things that don't actually need to be done, and they were willing to work with me on a timeline to get everything fixed, including swapping over winter tires today. They even offered a shuttle service to get me back home after dropping my vehicle off. Thank you Paul, Reuben, and Vanessa for an excellent experience! I will definitely be back for any future mechanic needs.

By far the nicest most helpful staff out there. Owner was on the floor getting in just as well as everyone else, highly recommend this family run business. Edit, on my 3rd different vehicle and countless time of coming to these guys and I stand behind my previous statement. I’d review these guys and give top ratings every single time If google would let me. Cannot recommend enough, use local it is infinitely better
