Do you need to get your check engine light in checked out? At Bender’s Automotive, we have provided friendly customer service and skillful, professional repair and maintenance for more than 40 years. If you’re like most car owners, your check engine light is a mysterious guest on your dashboard – and an unwelcome one at that! This is because it can mean so many different things. From a loose gas cap to a seriously misfiring engine—you need a La Verne CA automotive service shop you can depend on.
You don’t need to pull over to the side of the road and call a tow truck the minute your check engine light comes on. It is important, though, to get it looked at ASAP. Onboard computers control engine speed, fuel mixture, ignition timing, and even tells your transmission when to shift. When the computer senses a problem that it can’t correct, you see a yellow “check engine,” “service engine soon,” or “check powertrain” light. The computer stores a trouble code that we can see on our diagnostic computer. With this code, we can diagnose and repair your vehicle. By ignoring it, you could end up causing more damage, decreasing fuel economy and polluting the air!
Before bringing it in, you might want to try tightening your gas cap or disconnecting and reconnecting the battery. You may have to make several trips for the computer to reset. If the light goes off, you have solved your issue!
If it doesn’t, bring your car in and we’ll make sure you receive high-quality and hassle-free service. We know how important your car is and we always try to give you same day service on most repairs and maintenance. Our ASE-certified technicians will always use the right parts, fluids, and equipment to properly repair and maintain your vehicle. That’s why we can offer a 24-month/24,000-mile warranty on all of our work.
This guarantee is honored at all 14,000 Napa Auto Centers nationwide. You can get back to your life feeling confident that your vehicle has been professionally serviced. We take great pride in doing the job right the first time, every time.
