Check Engine Light Diagnostics in Ludington MI

Mick’s Truck and Auto offers comprehensive automotive maintenance and repair services in Ludington, including check engine light diagnostics and repairs. Our nationally ASE certified technicians use state-of-the-art digital diagnostic tools to talk to your vehicle’s onboard computer, and they combine information gleaned from these tools with their extensive experience to pinpoint the cause of the check engine light, and to carry out necessary repairs.

The good news is that the check engine light does not necessarily mean protracted and expensive repairs. Even something as simple as a gas cap that does not hold pressure can trigger the check engine light. The bad news is that without a professional scanning the codes and applying his experience in tracking down the root cause of the check engine light, it is difficult to ascertain if the light indicates something fairly benign, or something very serious.

There is, however, one condition which is very clear: if the check engine light is flashing, you should stop the vehicle as soon as you find a safe spot, and turn off the engine. Have your vehicle towed to a local mechanic to diagnose and repair the problem. Driving with the check engine light flashing is very likely to cause expensive damage to your vehicle.

Even if the check engine light is not flashing, we recommend that you get your vehicle checked out as soon as possible. If the check engine light is on, but the car drives normally, you are likely ok to drive it home and to make next day appointment with your mechanic. Driving for prolonged time with the check engine light “ON”, even if there are no other symptoms, may result in damage to the emission system, and in rare but severe cases, it can damage the catalytic converter, resulting in the need for catalytic converter replacement – an expensive repair.

So if your vehicle’s onboard computer illuminated the check engine light, call Mick’s Truck and Auto in Ludington – we will get your vehicle inspected, repaired, and back on the road.
