What do you do when the check engine light comes on? More importantly what should you do?

The check engine light is one way your car communicates problems to the driver.  The vehicle computer runs many preprogrammed test as well as monitoring multiple sensors on the network during operation.  When problems are detected the computer will store fault codes.  Depending on the severity of the fault code and/or its impact on emissions the computer will illuminate the check engine light.  

If your check engine light is flashing IMMEDIATELY, bring your vehicle in for repairs.  Continued driving can result in severe damage.  If the light comes on and stay on over a day or two, schedule an appointment with Discount Automatics & Auto Repair for your vehicle to be checked.

Keep in mind that using a scan tool to retrieve fault codes is only the first step in diagnosing what repairs need to be done.  Beware of just replacing the part mentioned in the fault code in most cases this will result in a good part being replaced and money wasted.

Drivers often forget how critical the brake system is to their car.  They sometime ignore warning signs like “brakes grinding”, “vibrations when stopping”, or “brake pedal” problems.  If you’re experiencing any brake symptoms, you should have Discount Automatics & Auto Repair perform a brake inspection and help you put the brakes on a major accident.

Excellent service! Honest people and experienced mechanics who know more than just operating a PC. I had our van serviced there since we purchased it used in 2009.

I have visited a number of transmission shops in my day has a multi car owner and this one stood out. I would recommend the professionals I met here to anybody. If you have transmission problems, this place is a great start. I would even send my Mom, and she is picky....

I choose this place because it was close enough to walk to from my house and the name "discount" was part of their name. I was surprised by the the estimate to see the name applied. I was going to give 4 stars, due to the fact that I was not expecting to pay as much as I did. However this place did two things that I have never had offer to me. First they came and picked me up after my car was finished. The second was that they called me about two weeks after the job was completed to check and ensure I was happy with the service and check on their work.

I took my magnum there. 3500 later for a new trans rebuild I had to take it back 5 times and still had issues. I ended up selling the car as a loss.

I went there to have a Check engine light diagnosed and repaired, I left there shop over $ 1300 in repairs and the light was still on. The two problems that they fixed did not turn the light off and wanted another fee to try to fix it again each time charged me a fee for diagnoses and took twice as long to work on it, I checked around and found that I could have had the work done for half the price, and have to take to some where else to still get it fixed.
