Check Engine Light Diagnostics in Newton and Watertown, MA

We understand the dread of seeing the check engine light appear on your vehicle’s dashboard. Although it may be a cause for concern, the only way to know the root of the problem is to have diagnostics run on your vehicle. When the check engine light turns on, your vehicle is telling you that something is wrong with a major component. As soon as you see that light come on, bring your vehicle into Pleasant Car Care in Newton and Watertown, MA. Our friendly professionals are ASE certified technicians with years of hands-on experience. Our experts will run full diagnostics using high tech equipment to determine the exact cause of the issue.

The check engine light can be triggered by a number of different reasons. Inside your vehicle is a very complex computer system that connects to many different sensors associated with a variety of components. When a part stops working properly or has failed altogether, the sensor connected to that part will detect the problem and will then send a signal to your vehicle’s computer system. Once the computer system sees this signal, your check engine light will turn on.

As soon as you see that light turn on, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Be sure to note any other symptoms that you may have noticed around the time that the light turned on. It will give us a better idea of what the issue might be. We will schedule an appointment for you as soon as possible.
