Check engine light coming on is not a happy moment, but it does not necessarily mean major problems. Your Toyota’s onboard computer may illuminate the check engine light for one of hundreds of reasons – and many of them can be fairly benign.
As long as the check engine light is not flashing, and you don’t feel any misfires, you have time to look for a “mechanic near me” and to bring your Toyota to a shop for check engine light diagnostics.
While there are literally hundreds of reasons why the check engine light might come on, the most frequent ones include gas cap that does not hold pressure and worn out spark plugs.
Either one of these conditions is easily corrected. Naturally there will be times when the check engine light requires in-depth diagnostics and expensive repairs, but you should not assume this at the outset.
At Toole’s Garage in Valley Springs we can diagnose the check engine light and tell you exactly what’s necessary to fix the problem. Most check engine light repairs can be completed the same day, and all work performed by our highly skilled technicians carries nationwide 36 month / 36,000 miles warranty.
