What you need to know about engine repair
The Check Engine Light (also known as a Malfunction Indicator Lamp, or MIL) will illuminate when the engine control computer has registered a trouble code from a sensor. With modern engines, the computer governs everything related to drivability, including fuel metering and delivery, ignition timing, emissions, transmission shift points and much more. When a sensor that monitors one of these functions sends a reading to the computer that is outside of parameters, the computer then stores a trouble code and illuminates the MIL.
From there, a technician can then connect a code reader or scanner device to the car’s diagnostic connector (usually located under the dash on the drivers’ side) and access the trouble codes. Interpreting the trouble codes means that a lot of the guesswork and “gut feeling” is taken out of engine diagnosis.
Of course, the MIL can mean anything from a loose gas cap or loose or corroded wire, to much more serious problems. It’s always a cause for concern, but it’s more so if you notice any of the following:
- Hard starting
- Rough idle
- Black smoke
- Poor fuel economy
- Rough running
- Loss of power
- Transmission symptoms like delayed shifts, slippage or delayed engagement
Forty years ago, vehicles needed tune-ups every 35,000 miles or so. Today’s vehicles are a lot less maintenance-intensive, fuel-efficient and reliable…but they’re also a lot more complex and that’s why it’s so important to have a qualified, trained tech working on your engine.
At D.W. Campbell Tire & Service in Marietta, Marietta, Sandy Springs, Kennesaw and Woodstock, GA, that’s what you can count on – techs who are trained to work on the latest technology, for just about anything that has wheels and rolls. That’s what it takes these days – because the days of the shade-tree mechanic are over.
Is your MIL illuminated? Don’t put it off, because chances are it isn’t going to just get better on its own. Make an appointment with us at D.W. Campbell Tire & Service for engine repair before things get any worse!
