It’s easy to feel like your check engine light is a nuisance or a bother every time it comes on. However, the check engine light is doing you a favor because it’s detecting some small problem before it becomes a significant issue. To prevent those significant issues, you need an expert to diagnose your check engine light and help you know exactly what your car needs. At Port Orchard Ford, we have the check engine light diagnosis you need.
Our certified technicians start by reading the code in the computer that explains why the check engine light turned on. This usually only gives them an abnormal reading from one of the sensors, after which they have to go in and look at all the things that might cause that sensor to read something abnormal. After they rule out all the other causes, they’ll let you know what their primary diagnosis is, and then you can have that problem taken care of before it worsens.
We have technicians who are certified nationally in automotive repair and maintenance and certified in Ford service and repair. The Ford certification shows that they know their Ford vehicles and all the individualized quirks and qualities of each car. This allows them to service and repair your car better than someone who doesn’t know your vehicle thoroughly. They’ve gotten the credentials to prove their expertise, so you can have peace of mind when you bring your car in for recall service.
If your check engine light comes on and starts flashing, you need to pull over and call for a tow, as that indicates imminent danger to your engine. If it turns on and stays on, as is usually the case, you can bring it in whenever you have time, and we’ll check to find the cause. The check engine light comes on when one of the many sensors throughout the fuel line and engine picks up an abnormal reading and sends their code to the computer.

Our experts have the experience and training necessary to find the root cause of your check engine light illuminating, so you know you’ll have an answer when you come here.
