Myth #1 – You can ignore it and it doesn’t matter
Don’t leave a check engine light unchecked. You could increase the problems with your vehicle and get yourself stranded in the mean while.
Myth #2 – A check engine light diagnostic should be FREE.
Tools, training, on-hand expertise costs money. At Jay Walton Automotive, we offer an in-depth check engine light analysis for a diagnostic fee, because it is important to solve the real problem, the first time. We are always happy to explain the difference between our diagnostic process and a quick read from a cheap tool. We buy the most current diagnostic tools and software to help get to the bottom of your errors. We employee ASE certified and professionally trained technicians. Just like a skilled plumber or certified electrician, their time is valuable. When was the last time your plumber didn’t charge a diagnostic fee? The time it takes to give you a reliable assessment is the starting point to the cost of a repair that relates to your check engine light.
Myth #3 – All you have to do is replace the part from the check engine error code.
For some businesses, they really just sell parts. They do a quick scan and sell you the parts on the list. They may not even solve your problem, and you’ll return with the light back on. We’re not going to put you through that because we go much deeper to get to the bottom of your repair. To do an accurate diagnosis, the proper equipment and training are required. An inaccurate “guess” from a quick scan, may not address the root of the problem.
We strive for providing automotive excellence and customer service. A check engine light is a huge question mark for you, we want to provide you with specific answers. Vehicle’s engine computer can register 100s of errors. The time and energy of a dedicated professional can save you in the long run by identifying the system that is causing the error.
