Are You Onboard?

Every vehicle sold in this country from 1996 to the present has the updated On-Board Diagnostics (OBD II) system that enables technicians to access trouble codes and other engine management system information with the use of a scan tool. This very important system performs automatic checks of various components that affect emissions. After uncovering a problem, the OBD II will trigger the “CHECK ENGINE” light. The engine management system will then generate a code that the technician can use to locate the problem. While this system largely takes diagnosis and repair of many problems out of the hands of owners, it does provide an efficient means of keeping the vehicle in good working order.

Please don’t wait until your vehicle needs to be towed to us! Bring it in when the ‘CHECK ENGINE” light turns on, or just for regular, scheduled maintenance. Medical doctors tell us to have regular checkups to maintain good health – the same is true for the health of your car. We take exceptional care of our clients and their cards, from routine maintenance such as oil changes and tune-ups, to expert repairs on all types of vehicular troubles with a 12 month/12,000 mile guarantee. Call 952-473-4848, or visit us today at 2220 Daniels Street, Long Lake.

Hint: If the “CHECK ENGINE” light comes on, about the only thing a driver can check for him-or herself is to see if the gas cap is securely in place.
