Diagnose Check Engine Light

A Check Engine Light diagnosis is an investigation beyond a visual inspection and quick code read (those are free!) to identify the root cause of what is making your Check Engine Light come on. 

Once we read the code and inspect the vehicle, we may know the cause right away and a diagnosis isn't necessary. However, in many cases, a deeper diagnosis is required.

Frequently Asked Check Engine Light Questions

When your check engine light is on, it can mean a variety of things. In general, if the light is flashing, it can be a serious issue so you should take your car to a trusted mechanic immediately. If the light is on but not flashing, it is likely a less serious issue, but you can still cause further damage by driving the car. A Roda mechanic may be able to diagnose the issue with a quick visual inspection (done free of charge!). If not then a diagnosis will be required in order to determine why the light is on.

There are many things that can cause a check engine light to go on. It could be that your gas cap is loose or damaged, your oxygen sensor has failed, or your catalytic converter is not functioning properly. You can find a full list of common causes on the Roda blog. The check engine light can indicate a minor or major issue, so it's important to diagnose the problem as soon as possible. 

It is best not to drive the car when the check engine light is on, especially when the light is flashing. If you are unsure if the car should be towed or is driveable, ask your Roda Concierge when booking your appointment.

Easy and quick. They do find a lot of things to fix but I love that they back up the claims with photos and I have time to Google the fixes (and check their costs against "expected" costs and their recommendations against the internets recommendations). And then if I choose to not do a fix, they remember it for next time. Very cool.
