Don't Let the Check Engine Light Turn You Off From Making Needed Repairs

Don't Let the Check Engine Light Turn You Off From Making Needed Repairs

The top 10 check engine light repairs from the annual CarMD Vehicle Health Index reinforces what the Car Care Council has been saying for years. Motorists who ignore the check engine light get less miles per gallon and could face costly repairs down the road.

"Many people fear that when the check engine light comes on, it is going to mean several hundred or more dollars in repairs, so they ignore the light and hope the problem goes away," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "Data from CarMD makes it clear that not addressing the cause of an illuminated check engine light can cost you in terms of wasted fuel and more expensive repairs in the future."

When the check engine light is illuminated, it usually means that the vehicle system, such as the ignition, fuel injection or emission control, is not operating properly, even if the vehicle appears to be running normally. The top 10 most common check engine light repairs as reported by the recently released CarMD Vehicle Health Index are as follows.

  1. Replace O2 sensor(s)
  2. Replace ignition coil(s) and spark plug(s)
  3. Replace catalytic converter
  4. Inspect fuel cap and tighten or replace as necessary
  5. Replace evaporative emissions (EVAP) purge control valve
  6. Replace mass airflow (MAF) sensor
  7. Replace ignition coil(s)
  8. Replace evaporative emissions (EVAP) purge solenoid
  9. Replace fuel injector(s)
  10. Replace thermostat

"Following a recommended maintenance schedule and addressing small problems before they become bigger ones will help extend the life of your car and minimize check engine related repairs," continued White. "It's important to note that most of the common check engine problems negatively impact a car's fuel economy and become more costly to repair if service is delayed."

The Car Care Council's popular Car Care Guide features helpful information about the check engine light. Available in English and Spanish, a printed copy of the 80-page Car Care Guide can be ordered free-of-charge by visiting www.carcare.org/car-care-guide.

Speedy Transmission is an excellent transmission repair shop. The people there are great to work with. The main gal at the deck is extremely knowledgeable as well as professional and a nice person. She is either the owner or employee but if she's an employee she needs a raise. I am especially appreciative of this shop as they came highly recommended by a friend of mine and the only transmission shop in the area that I know who were willing and able to work on my vehicle. Evidently my vehicle (a 2012 GMC Penske box truck) has a transmission that is more difficult to work on than normal and other shops in the area had declined to even give me a quote as either their bays weren't big enough or the transmission itself was too difficult. Thanks everyone at Speedy Transmission.

Hi all, so back in August I bought a used 03 suburban with 178k on the odometer and was in exellent interior and exterior shape as well mechanically (or so I thought) Within the first week of ownership the transmission was shifting quite hard from 1-2 And after searching around this place came up with good reviews and decided to bring it in for diagnostic, and sadly my good deal purchase was going to need a transmission... Decided to bite the bullet as the rest of truck was really good shape and let this shop rebuild it. I waited to write the review becouse I wanted to see how it did in months of driving and all I can say is this is by far the best experience I've gotten out a rebuild unit (I've had 3 transmissions rebuilt in my lifetime) super smooth and shifting like new!!!! Very happy with results and will recommend this shop to anyone that is need of transmission service. Very professional and very competitive pricing!!!!!!
