Check Engine Light Diagnostic
Sometimes the only indication you need engine repairs is the check engine light (or service engine soon light) illuminating your dashboard. Often, you’re driving along and notice the light has come on, but your vehicle seems to be running just fine—no knocking, pinging, banging, or loss of power. But, you know—or let us tell you now—if you ignore your check engine light, you may cause engine damage, a stressful and potentially expensive proposition, to be sure. Bring your vehicle to Valencia Auto Performance & Simply Smog, and we’ll determine why your check engine light has come on, using state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment, and take care of the engine repair or adjustment you need, so you can trust your vehicle is in reliable driving condition.
Regular engine maintenance will ensure your engine is running efficiently and reliably, prevent vehicle breakdowns, extend the life of your car or truck, and help avoid the need for major engine repairs. During an engine performance check-up, our technicians will check your spark plugs, which are responsible for igniting the gas and air mixture that fuels your engine, as well as your spark plug wires, which transfer voltage created by your spark plug. Old wires can burn out and cause a misfire. We’ll also check the condition of your fuel filters and air filters, which prevent debris from reaching your engine. A clogged fuel filter can cause poor acceleration and engine performance, while restricted airflow makes your engine work harder and results in lost horsepower.
