• European Car Check Engine

  • Check Engine Light is by far one of the most hated things in a car, the simple reason? it can only give you bad news... there are a lot of reasons why a check engine light flashes, some of them is minor and can be fixed with almost no expense and some of them will send you the massage - take me to the junk yard...

    An important thing you should know is that a check engine light is for emission purpose and will tell you only emission issues, so if you have an electricity problem, don't count on that light to update you.

    Check engine light can go on because of a faulty Gas Cap, it's one of these parts that meant to fail after a few years, the seal is worn and need to be replaced, we recommend to replace to Manufacture OEM Gas Cap so you can promise yourself that the light will stay off for at least 2 more years.

    90% of the times a Check Engine Light Code will have multiple issues because one is faulting the other, for example, Codes 300 are for an engine misfire, but it doesn't mean that you have to go and replace the spark plugs, that is why when people go to those free car depots they are 50% to buy a different product than what they actually need, a 300 code like we mentioned before can be an ignition coil, a spark plug or just a loose wire that bounced out one day (it happens...) so before your next trip to the store in a goof will to save some bucks, stop by at family auto care and let the professional diagnose your check engine light with the most advanced diagnosing systems for european cars in las vegas!
