Don't Let the Check Engine Light Turn You Off From Making Needed Repairs

Don't Let the Check Engine Light Turn You Off From Making Needed Repairs



The top 10 check engine light repairs from the annual CarMD Vehicle Health Index reinforces what the Car Care Council has been saying for years. Motorists who ignore the check engine light get less miles per gallon and could face costly repairs down the road.



"Many people fear that when the check engine light comes on, it is going to mean several hundred or more dollars in repairs, so they ignore the light and hope the problem goes away," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "Data from CarMD makes it clear that not addressing the cause of an illuminated check engine light can cost you in terms of wasted fuel and more expensive repairs in the future."



When the check engine light is illuminated, it usually means that the vehicle system, such as the ignition, fuel injection or emission control, is not operating properly, even if the vehicle appears to be running normally. The top 10 most common check engine light repairs as reported by the recently released CarMD Vehicle Health Index are as follows.




  1. Replace O2 sensor(s)

  2. Replace ignition coil(s) and spark plug(s)

  3. Replace catalytic converter

  4. Inspect fuel cap and tighten or replace as necessary

  5. Replace evaporative emissions (EVAP) purge control valve

  6. Replace mass airflow (MAF) sensor

  7. Replace ignition coil(s)

  8. Replace evaporative emissions (EVAP) purge solenoid

  9. Replace fuel injector(s)

  10. Replace thermostat



"Following a recommended maintenance schedule and addressing small problems before they become bigger ones will help extend the life of your car and minimize check engine related repairs," continued White. "It's important to note that most of the common check engine problems negatively impact a car's fuel economy and become more costly to repair if service is delayed."



The Car Care Council's popular Car Care Guide features helpful information about the check engine light. Available in English and Spanish, a printed copy of the 80-page Car Care Guide can be ordered free-of-charge by visiting Car Care Guide.

Spoke to Shelly about transmission service for possible slipping. She thoroughly explained a Transmission specialist is best and then referred a few placed. Shelly's customer appreciation shines bright even on a phone call. Thank you for your help.

In a world of dissonance and diminishing customer service, Jaybee's sets a fine example for customer care. I never feel taken advantage of here and I appreciate their expertise especially finding problems before they get worse. Shelly is upbeat and sincere, a winning combination in my book.

A couple of months ago I took my 20-year old pick up truck to JayBees to have a couple of major issues fixed. They had worked on my vehicle once before and I was very pleased with their work. The staff thoroughly diagnosed my truck including the two major issues as well as several others I knew about but didn't mention and some things under the hood I did not know about. Shelly thoroughly explained all the needed repairs and cost of each so I knew exactly what I was getting done and why. I had everything repaired for what I felt was a reasonable price and my truck has been running like a dream ever since! Jacqui and Shelly were a pleasure to work with.

I've been a satisfied customer of JayBees for just under 25 years now, and you won't find a better shop in Tucson. I first found them when a local Ford dealer couldn't diagnose a problem with my Ford product and they've maintained my ageing fleet ever since. With JayBees in town, why would you need to buy a new car? Just keep yours properly maintained! And they do it all ... or can get it done ... at a very reasonable price. I could tell you many, many stories of how Jacqui, Shelly, Doug and everyone there have kept me mobile and would be glad to ... but reviews are supposed to be kept to a readable length. That said, they have my full-throated endorsement. You can't go wrong with JayBees!
