Diagnosis And Common Causes

When you bring your transportation to Perfection Exhaust & Auto Care for check engine light diagnostics, we’ll follow our tried and true process to ensure accuracy. Like any decent shop, we’ll connect our computerized equipment to your car’s OBD-II port. This will generate a universal trouble code to point us in the right direction. That, however, is only the first step in the sequence. While some shops stop there, our mechanics know they need to draw on their years of experience to narrow the problem to the exact issue that has triggered the code. This ensures the accuracy of the work we do. As described, we’ll need to check your vehicle before making assumptions. However, we don’t mind sharing with you some of the more common causes behind the CEL. An often seen problem lies with sensors that are no longer functioning properly. These include the oxygen sensor that measures the unburned oxygen in the exhaust and the mass airflow sensor that gauges the amount of air available to the engine during combustion. Another source of trouble can be aging spark plugs that have worn tips. Deteriorating spark plug wires can also trigger the MIL as a related issue. A less common problem can be a failing catalytic converter. Finally, the light can illuminate if you accidentally leave your gas cap loose.
