Volkswagen Check Engine Light Diagnosis

Check Engine Light Diagnosis

When your check engine light comes on, it can be alarming. It is a cause for concern, but there’s no need to panic. Bring your car to Bachman Volkswagen in Louisville, KY, and let us find the cause and fix whatever issue there is in your car’s engine. The check engine light simply means there is something unusual going on inside your engine. This could be something as simple as your gas cap is loose or a major issue. Check your gas cap, and if it is tight and the light is still on, bring your car to us. We are in Monaca, and a short drive from Jeffersontown, Middletown, Lyndon, and Hurstbourne, KY.

What Your Check Engine Light Means

The light means something unusual is happening. It should be checked out as soon as possible, but a few days will probably be sufficient. However, if you have a check engine light blinking, there is a major issue, and you should not drive your car until it is addressed.

The light generally indicates a misfire of some kind, which will lessen your fuel mileage and dump more pollutants into the air.

What to do About the Check Engine Light

The car’s computer records an error message that tells what the problem is, or at least what it likely is. A check engine light diagnosis involves using a scanner to read that code. A certified technician can read the scanner and very quickly isolate the problem.

There are cheap scanners available out there, which can give you some information. But for anything beyond very basic fixes, it is advisable to have professionals read the scanner and interpret the data to get your car fixed right. It is a good idea to simply check your gas cap first to make sure that it is not the problem the light is telling you about.

Come See Us

If your check engine light is on, call Bachman Volkswagen and schedule service. Our technicians can scan your car’s computer and get a correct diagnosis fast. Having us do it may save you time by avoiding incorrect readings.

If you have a check engine light blinking or red, turn off your car and have it towed to us to avoid even more costly repairs. We are in Louisville, KY. and a short drive from Jeffersontown, Middletown, Lyndon, and Hurstbourne, KY.
