Your check engine light, or service engine soon light comes on – now what? These lights are called malfunction indicator lights and they are plugged into an on-board computer system that keeps track of numerous parameters. Our proficient techs use state of the art diagnostic tools, to determine the origin of the problem.
We take pride in combining our knowledgeable technicians with the best diagnostic tools available to diagnose your car and limit costly guess work and unnecessary labor costs.
Starting in the early nineties, all cars created for sale in the US are required to provide a 16-pin OBD-II connector that allows access to the onboard diagnostics system. There are numerous sensors and actuators that are connected to your onboard computer that can turn on this light. When something in this system is “out of whack” the computer stores data and turns the light on to advise you that something is amiss. At Martino’s Auto Center, we utilize advanced technology to determine which system or systems are malfunctioning, allowing us to pinpoint the problems and put you safely back on the road.
There are many reasons why your check engine light comes on, some are fairly common, For example; you may be due to replace an oxygen sensor, your gas cap may be loose or faulty, your catalytic converter may be failing, a sensor may be malfunctioning, or it’s as simple as worn spark plugs or wires. Regardless of the issue, you can rest assured that your car is in capable hands.
