Seeing the dreaded “Check Engine” light appear on your dashboard is never good news. If you see any indicators regarding your engine displayed on your car’s dash, come to Westside Automotive Repair Centre without delay. Although this warning light could be signaling something minor, it could also mean that there is something serious going on with your engine. Ignoring the check engine light is not recommended, as delaying maintenance could lead to bigger (more costly) problems and your car breaking down unexpectedly.
To keep your vehicle running smoothly, have your car’s engine and transmission inspected regularly. When you bring your car in for an oil change, our automotive technicians will also visually inspect the belts, fluids, cooling, electrical and exhaust systems.
