What To Do When Your Check Engine Light Illuminates
Once you notice that your Check Engine Light has come on, the best way to get some answers is to bring your vehicle to a factory trained technician, like our team at Lone Star Automotive. But there are also a few checks you can do on your own. Some vehicle owners invest in an OBD-II scanner that is capable of reading your car’s diagnostic systems. The system will tell the scanner a specific PID code that indicates the specific problem with your vehicle’s engine. Some simple fixes do exist! In newer vehicles, if you fail to tighten your gas cap completely, it will set off the Check Engine Light. Other issues require more expert care, and it is often best to have a certified technician take a look to be sure.

One Light for Multiple Issues
Once you bring your vehicle into Lone Star Automotive, we’ll help you diagnose the issue and put together the best course of repair. One potential fault could be the O2 sensor. This monitors how much fuel is being burnt. A replacement will fix the issue and clear the Check Engine Light. The MAF (Mass Airflow Sensor) also triggers the Check Engine Light when it begins malfunctioning. Another possibility would be a bad catalytic converter. This repair tends to be one of the more expensive to complete. Our team will bring you our diagnostic results and help explain them to you. As the only AAA-approved shop in the Permian basin, we pride ourselves on our customer service and our dedication to getting you back on the road safely.
