“Check Engine Light On” – Diagnose & Repair

edmonton-engine-light-on-diagnose-repairThe infamous yellow CHECK ENGINE LIGHT has come on, now what? Once your car has arrived, we ask a few basic questions to determine the conditions that may have influenced the check engine engine light’s activation. Was the car cold, hot, starting, at idle, or up to speed? We would then attach diagnostic equipment to your car and retrieve the information. Once this step has been completed, any engine trouble codes retrieved would allow us to diagnose and estimate cost of the procedure to repair the condition which turned the check engine light on. Further removal of parts, and/or testing of engine parts may be required to more accurately diagnose and price the repair. Best Choice Automotive utilizes up-to-date factory information and scanning equipment to expedite the diagnostic process.

Your vehicle’s computer may record the parameters that turned the check engine light on, then under certain conditions the light may go out, but problems still exists. To expedite the repair, the conditions which turned the check engine light on must be duplicated to verify the problem. In some cases the car may have to be driven until the symptomsare more consistant.The best time to diagnose a vehicle problem is when the symptoms are occurring and present in the car when it arrives at Best Choice Automotive.

Modern Automobile Engines

service-engine-soon-light-edmontonToday’s automobile engines are one of the most highly sophisticated computerized engineering systems in the world. They take a mixture of air and volatile fuels, and mix, compress, and ignite it thousands of times a minute. These engines must start and run flawlessly in every different environment there is, from the hottest of our weather, to the coldest of winters. Their designs have a variety of different fuel injection, ignition systems, and cylinder variations. Every aspect of their systems is run by a multiple of controls, modules and sensors all coordinated by computers.

Complicated as this sounds, your engine will run for many, many kilometers of safe trouble free driving. To do this for you, they just require a little care and routine maintenance. The most important thing is to change the engine oil and filter every five thousand kilometers. This one small maintenance procedure will determine how long your engine may last. At Best Choice Automotive, when we change your oil we can also give your vehicle an inspection to ensure your car is safe for the road. These little things go a long way to keep you and your family on the road for many kilometers of safe and trouble free driving so that you may have peace of mind in the reliability of your car.
