When your Check Engine light comes on, you may be torn between utter panic and just wanting to ignore it and hope it goes away. That's perfectly understandable. That same Check Engine light could come on for anything from a serious engine or transmission problem all the way down to a loose gas cap.

There's a very common misconception that the trouble codes stored in your engine computer when your check engine light comes on will specifically identify a problem. It's really more like pointing to the symptoms of a problem.
Call Auto Pro at 813-866-7411 for help with your Check Engine light.
Think of taking your temperature. Say it's 101°. Your heat sensor – the thermometer – tells you that your temperature is out of the normal range. But it doesn't tell you why you have a fever. Is it the flu or a sinus infection? You need more information, more tests.

For any given trouble code, there could be a number of causes. So your trained technician takes the trouble code as a starting point and begins a diagnostic process to determine the cause of the problem. And some problems take longer to solve than others.

When your engine management system logs a problem and illuminates the check engine light, your Tampa service technician at Auto Pro will plug in a scanner, download the trouble codes and go to work tracing the cause of the problem.

That's just the first step. That's when our Auto Pro technician's training, equipment, databases and skill get put to work diagnosing the problem and fixing it.

If your check engine light is flashing, it means that the problem could lead to serious damage. You should get to Auto Pro as soon as possible to get the problem solved. If it's on but not flashing, you have some time to get in at your convenience.

Air Conditioning Service at Auto Pro
Most Tampa people don't service their vehicle air conditioning until after it fails. Maintaining your air conditioning system means that you always have enough refrigerant to properly do the job. Small leaks in the air conditioning system allow the refrigerant to escape and the system can't cool the air as well.
Along with the refrigerant, a special oil circulates in the system. The oil lubricates air conditioning components and keeps the seals resilient. Low refrigerant and lubricating oil means that the vehicle air conditioning parts will wear out prematurely, and all Tampa know that Tampa AC can be costly. Affordable AC service at Auto Pro in Tampa starts with a thorough visual inspection of the components for signs of damage or leaks. The compressor is driven by a belt from the engine, most often the serpentine belt, so it's inspected for cracks or wear.
The vehicle air conditioning compressor and other components are checked for proper operation. Then comes the leak test. If an air conditioning leak is detected, often in a hose or connection, it's repaired and the system is retested. Your friendly and knowledgeable Auto Pro will also perform a temperature drop test. If needed, the old refrigerant is evacuated and the system is recharged with clean, fresh refrigerant. A final test insures that the vehicle air conditioner is working, and you're on your way. How often this should be done varies from vehicle to vehicle. Your owner's manual will have the manufacturer's recommendation and, of course, your Auto Pro can tell you. It's typically every two years.
