Gentlemen, Check Your Engines! You are driving along enjoying the ride while serenaded by your favorite tunes. Suddenly that pesky “Check Engine” light comes on, and the mood quickly changes as, depending on where you are and what the problem is, that signal is relating a situation that can range anywhere from a minor annoyance to a major service visit. At NYE Automotive Group, our service departments pride themselves on the quick diagnosis of the problem and an expert assessment of what it’ll take to fix the condition that caused the light to come on in the first place. That “Check Engine” light, more formally known as the “malfunction indicator lamp,” is telling you something, somewhere, is wrong with the vehicle. It might be a simple fix that you can do yourself, like a loose gas cap. Or it might not, and that’s when you really need to trust in NYE to make it right. Plus your vehicle won’t pass its next inspection with the light on. That warning light has been around since the oldest computerized engine systems back in the early 1980s, and GM’s Computer Command Control system was one of the first to offer a self diagnosis functionality. Today, that computer constantly sweeps the engine for any signs of trouble, checking for symptoms ranging from high levels of emissions, to abnormally excessive fuel consumption, to electrical abnormalities. Once it detects a problem, that warning light shine to let you know you need to take a look. Before you go any farther, however, note that if your signal is a flashing it means you have an even more serious problem, and you are likely better off parking it and having the vehicle towed to the NYE service. Don’t just ignore the light and drive on pretending it isn’t there. Even if you are afraid of an expensive repair, just about any problem is compounded by the continued operation. Give NYE a call and you’ll be reassured your vehicle is running in tip-top shape once again. The NYE Automotive Group is located at 1479 Genesee St. in Oneida, N.Y.
