Check Engine Light Diagnosis

Check Engine Light Diagnosis At Fulton Automotive In Sumter
Apr 29th, 2019

Many Sumter drivers have had their Check Engine light come on. It’s an amber colored light that shows on your dashboard. In newer vehicles, it might just be a problem with your gas cap not being screwed on tight enough (or a worn gas cap), causing the vehicle to fail the self-diagnostic evaporative emission test. All you need to do is go to your gas cap and verify that it is tight. If that was the problem, the light will turn off and everything will be fine within one or two days.

Resist the temptation to have someone “clear” the codes to turn off your vehicle check engine light. This erases important diagnostic information that your friendly and knowledgeable Fulton Automotive technician needs to diagnose the underlying problem for the Check Engine light – and any other pending problems that may be stored in the vehicle computer.

If the problem is still there — you still see the light — bring your vehicle in to Fulton Automotive in Sumter and have your Check Engine light checked out as soon as possible.
