Thousand Oaks’ Go-to Shop for Accurate German Auto Check Engine Light Diagnostics

German Auto Check Engine Light Repair

Your car’s warning lights on the dashboard are there to alert you to a problem or need for service. Many times, the Check Engine Light (CEL) gets a bad rap because it used to be so vague. Now, with advancements in technology, when the engine light comes on in your car, a technician can run a diagnostic check to immediately get to the source of the problem.

The Usual Suspects

In German vehicles, the equipment used can vary depending on your brand. Some of the most common causes of a check engine light illumination include:

  • Mass air flow sensor problem: The mass airflow sensor can become corroded with dirt, road debris, or become damaged by water/driving through flooded areas. This problem may be resolved with a proper cleaning, but it could need replacement.
  • Faulty oxygen sensors: These control the air-to-fuel ratio. Without the precise amount of air, you will fill up more at the tank and your spark plugs and catalytic converter can become damaged over time. These usually fail around 80,000 miles on average unless they are damaged earlier.
  • Failing spark plugs, faulty fuel injector, and vacuum hose leaks: There are many more reasons why your check engine light will illuminate, so bring your German or European Car to Bavarian Performance Specialists to have it properly diagnosed and repaired.

Many times, these repairs are quick and inexpensive, so don’t delay or cause unnecessary damage to your car by putting this off.
