Check Engine Light Repair in Ludington, MI
Check Engine Light aka CEL light was designed to be a generic warning light that signals a problem (or multiple problems) with your vehicle. It can signify something as simple as a faulty gas cap, or something as serious as engine misfire or catalytic converter failure. Mick’s Truck and Auto offers comprehensive check engine light diagnostics and repairs in Ludington.
If the check engine light is flashing, it indicates a serious problem that can result in expensive damage if you continue to drive the vehicle. We recommend that you pull over to the side of the road as soon as it is safe to do so, turn off the engine, and have your vehicle towed to a professional auto repair shop.
Most of the time though, the check engine light will be illuminated, but not flashing. This indicates need for professional diagnostics, but if the vehicle operates normally, you can drive it to the repair shop – no need to have it towed. We do recommend setting up a diagnostic and repair appointment as soon as possible – driving for extended period of time with the check engine light “on”, even if it’s not flashing, can result in serious damage to the vehicle and very expensive repairs.
If you choose to bring your vehicle to our Ludington auto repair shop, you will be greeted by our friendly service advisors, while you vehicle is examined by our highly-skilled, nationally ASE-certified technicians. We use cutting-edge digital diagnostic tools to get to the root cause of the check engine light problem, and once identified, we will let you know what repairs are necessary to get your car back on the road.
Sometimes the problem that triggered the check engine light is simple to fix – gas cap replacement, or a faulty sensor, but the CEL light can also indicate a faulty EGR valve, worn-out spark plugs, problem with a fuel injector, engine misfire, and a variety of emissions problems, including catalytic converter failure.
Mick’s Truck and Auto technicians will use advanced digital diagnostic tools to scan the fault codes, and to test the subsystems that the codes indicate could be the culprits. Combining decades of hands-on experience, with advanced training and latest diagnostic tools, our technicians will determine the exact nature of the problem and will let you know how it can be solved. Once we know the cause of the problem, our service advisors will explain repair options and answer any questions you may have – before we proceed with the repairs. With all repairs you can expect:
- Original Equipment equivalent or better quality parts
- 24 months / 24,000 miles warranty
- In most cases, same day service completion
