Is your check engine light on?

It may sound like a silly question, but is your check engine light on?  Has it been on a while?   Have you just been ignoring it, hoping it will go off on its own?

First off, if it is a flashing “check engine light,” something is wrong. And, if you continue to drive at normal or high speeds, you could cause severe damage to many components and even your catalytic converter. And, even if the light just recently came and simply has a steady glow over a day or two, you still need to schedule an appointment with us and have one of our mechanics use the proper diagnostic tools to check the vehicle over.

It best, for the long-term care of your vehicle, to not ignore the warning lights on your dashboard. The sooner an issue can be discovered and resolved the sooner a potentially serious problem can be avoided.

Our repair and service shop is located at 815 D Spring Street, Friday Harbor, WA. Our staff at Finish Line Auto Repair looks forward to scheduling an appointment, just call (360) 378-5685.
