Some people will drive with their check engine light on, hoping it will flash off and go away. Unfortunately, this can lead to engine failure and getting stranded on the side of the road. We recommend trying to unscrew and re-screw your gas cap. One of the most simple issues that causes a check engine light to come on is the gas cap not being closed properly; if that doesn’t fix it right away than something else is going on with your engine. It could be a range of issues from minor to major: time to replace a sensor, spark plug, ignition coil, thermostat, valve, fuel injector, or catalytic converter.

Prolong Your Vehicle’s Life

One way to ensure your vehicle has a good, long life is by proper maintenance. Just as we know that brushing our teeth, getting annual doctor’s checkups, and eating fruits and veggies is good for us, there are a number of things we can do for our vehicles that help prolong its life and avoid costly repairs. First of all, we recommend getting an oil change every 3,000 miles for older vehicles and every 5000 to 7000 miles for newer vehicles. This will help keep your car running smoothly, while also giving Gurney’s expert auto techs a chance to look over your vehicle when you come in. We can work with you to create a personalized maintenance plan that works for you and your vehicle.
