Complete Resource For Check Engine Light Repairs!

Check engine light on again? Don't panic, these types of concerns don't necessarily have to mean an expensive repair...honestly! This site is dedicated to assisting you with those troublesome engine light concerns! We really enjoy helping both the general public and professional technicians alike, with the complex issue of diagnosing and repairing faults which can cause the check engine, or service engine soon light to illuminate. With that said, let me introduce myself.

My name is Michael and I have been a professional technician in the automotive industry for more than 14 years. Due to the ever changing technology associated with the Electronic Engine Control systems in todays vehicles, I still learn something new everyday. As a Master Certified Technician, I am fortunate enough to be provided with routine manufacturer training which allows me to stay current on all aspects of check engine light and trouble code diagnosis. I also, apparently much like you, do a lot of online research, looking to see what kinds of problems and solutions are currently being addressed.

I began finding a lot of misinformation and very vague help attempts for questions regarding emissions control systems, and the "service engine soon" light in particular. It also seemed to be very time consuming and frustrating sorting through the forums to find specific vehicle information. These observations prompted me to work at providing a site where a visitor could come and get specific information for trouble code diagnosis which would be accurate, timely and complete. It is rare that a repair for a check engine light can be fixed simply by resetting it or disconnecting the battery. The dreaded light will return! Don't be mad however, the light is only the messenger. It is simply doing it's very important job letting you know that your vehicle isn't operating at top efficiency....and this is a good thing!

The Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL), is not only for the vehicles emission system as some techs would have you believe. This light informs the operator when there is a problem anywhere in the vehicles Electronic Engine Control System. This system basically includes all sensors, solenoids, valves, actuators etc. that your vehicle needs to operate correctly. As I'm sure you've concluded, this system is huge, and can include both engine and transmission concerns. This is where we come in! With only a few basic tools, a little patience and some mechanical aptitude you can pinpoint and repair most of these concerns yourself. So fear not, we can help you with that!

At we strive to provide a quick and easy way to help consumers and other field professionals get all the information needed to diagnose engine light concerns. Even if your vehicle is being serviced by the manufacturing dealer it is still great practice to be educated on what is going on with your car. You may find simply being more educated on the possible causes of these trouble codes could save you from having your vehicle "over-repaired" (see our article here). Either way we hope you find our site easy to navigate and helpful. We are always open to suggestions so if you'd like to see something done differently let us know! Thanks for stopping in, and remember we're here to help!
