Check Engine Light Repair in Denver, CO

Check Engine Light Repair in Denver | South Denver Automotive

South Denver Automotive offers broad range of auto maintenance, diagnostic, and repair services. Over the years, many of our clients had to confront the dreaded check engine light coming “on”. Fortunately, the check engine light does not necessarily indicate expensive repairs – but it does tell you to bring your vehicle for an inspection by a professional mechanic. At South Denver Automotive we have extensive experience diagnosing and fixing check engine light problems. So if your vehicle illuminated the check engine light, bring it to our Denver auto repair facility, and we will diagnose the root cause of the problem and get your vehicle fixed and “on the road again”.

South Denver Automotive employs nationally ASE certified technicians and equips them with state-of-the-art digital diagnostic tools. Diagnosis can be tricky, especially that the codes we read form the onboard computer usually only point us in a direction of a sub-system of your vehicle. It takes extensive experience to properly diagnose and repair the cause of the check engine light.  We combine technicians’ extensive experience with the latest diagnostic tools to find the origin of the problem that caused the check engine light to come “on”, and to get it fixed right – the first time.

There are literally hundreds of conditions that can cause the onboard computer to illuminate the check engine light.  Many of them are relatively benign. However, if the check engine light is flashing you should pull over as soon safety allows, and turn off the engine. Your vehicle will need to be towed to a repair shop. If you drive with the check engine light flashing, you may cause very expensive damage to your vehicle.

Even if the check engine light is not flashing, we recommend visiting your friendly local mechanic as soon as you can – driving around with the check engine light “on” can result in damage to the catalytic converter, which will require expensive repair.

As mentioned before, the check engine light can be illuminated for many reasons. Among the common ones are: a variety of emissions system problems, problems with ignition coils, and worn spark plugs. Faulty sensors, like the mass airflow sensor or oxygen sensor, can also cause the light to come “on”. Catalytic converter failure will also cause the onboard computer to illuminate the check engine light.
