Veenstra’s Garage has been specializing in foreign and domestic engine repair for the past 90 years. A check engine light can imply anything from a loose gasoline cap to something much more serious, such as a blow head gasket. Having your vehicle’s engine checked regularly can prevent various failings of engine parts. Your vehicle’s computer system receives information from a network of sensors and then commands correct action from the ignition, fuel and emission systems for proper fuel mileage and engine performance. If any of those systems fail or misfire, it triggers the computer to turn on your check engine light, which should trigger you to bring your car into Veenstra’s Garage.
