Check Engine Light Diagnostics and Repair in San Rafael

Getting into your vehicle to find that the check engine light has illuminated on the dashboard can be stressful. We’ve all been there, and it can definitely bring some uncertainty when you start to think about the potential issues your vehicle may have and what it will cost you to fix it. The best thing that you can do for both your vehicle and your wallet is to bring your car into R & I Automotive here in San Rafael, CA as soon as you see the check engine light turn on.

The check engine light is your vehicle’s way of letting you know that it has detected a problem with an important component. Today’s modern vehicles are equipped with an intelligent computer system which helps to monitor all of its critical systems. When an issue occurs with a crucial engine part, a sensor will detect this problem and alert your vehicle’s computer. This will cause the check engine light to illuminate, telling you that your vehicle needs to be inspected.

The issue could be as small as a loose gas cap or something more severe such as a failing catalytic converter. In order for our ASE certified technicians to truly understand the cause of the issue, we utilize state-of-the-art computer scanning tools which plug into your vehicle. These tools allow us to read the error code that caused the light to turn on in the first place. This error code will point our experts in the direction of the problem so that we can further inspect and identify what repairs are needed to restore your vehicle.
