We know all too well that sinking feeling in your stomach that you get when your vehicle’s engine light come on. Don’t panic just yet, but also importantly, don’t continue driving your car without having the issue diagnosed! The engine light (in some cars EPC Light) is a signal from the vehicles on board computer that something is wrong. Depending on the severity of the problem the light might be intermittent or stay on constantly. The light usually stays on once a fault has been detected and might stay on to remind you that a problem occurred.

Most modern cars are packed with different sensors and electronic circuits. These are the 5 most common systems that cause the Check Engine Light to come on:

  • Engine Misfire

If possible a mechanic will endeavor to fix the issue identified during the inspection time booked for. In many cases, though, new parts will be necessary to fix the problem. Should this be the case, then the mechanic will quote you for the labour and parts needed to fix the problem.

When you agree with the quote then the mechanic will try and source the parts and fix the problem at a later time. In some cases, though, due to non-availability of the parts or a shortage of time needed for the repair, it might mean that the mechanic will have to return on another day.
