It used to be a whole lot easier. In this day and age your vehicle is a rolling computer. Most cars are equipped with an onboard system that controls your car’s performance. Some of those areas are the fuel injection system, the spark plugs, and even the steering mechanism. It is hard to keep your car on the road if you can’t steer it!
We have learned to become familiar with the “check engine light”. Thank heaven for it. If your body had one you could avoid a lot of grief in the future. This light gives you the time that you need (hopefully) to get a problem under control before your car shuts down. Don’t be one of those people who drives around for days with that light staring at you.
If you want to save a lot of money, get your vehicle’s engine checked immediately. The long term consequences may cost you thousands of dollars. If you are driving around the Kansas City area and that dreaded light goes on make your next stop Able Auto Service. Rob and his crew “The A-Team” have been keeping KC cars on the road for a long, long, time. Call them at (913) 321-1030.
