Check Engine Light in Arlington, VA

Stop By Our Shop -- Auto Stop Arlington

Modern vehicles have advanced onboard computer systems that are programmed to alert you to minor maintenance needs before they become a major problem. Even if your vehicle is older when your check engine light comes on, you must determine what the cause is as soon as possible. This allows you to get ahead of a small issue, before it becomes a major problem. There are a variety of causes for this warning signal, which includes a faulty gas cap, low tire pressure, malfunctioning wires, bad spark plugs, engine or transmission issues, and more! View your engine light as a convenient indicator that can keep you from a breakdown. When you see this light, don’t wait for service and have the cause diagnosed quickly. Walk-ins are always welcome at Auto Stop Arlington!

You Don’t Have To Go To Your Dealership To Have Computer Diagnostics Run

Auto Stop Arlington understands the role technology plays in modern electronics, which is why we invest in the advanced diagnostics required to accurately diagnose all makes and models, including domestic, imports, and hybrids. This means that you don’t have to go to your dealership to determine what is in need of repair. Even if you stay on top of all factory scheduled maintenance, you may still have the occasional repair need. In most modern vehicles your automatic sensors will alert you to problems before they escalate. Most check engine light alerts can be diagnosed while you wait in the comfort of our spacious, sunlit lobby. Once we determine the repair need, we will present you with your options and a fair, honest quote for the fix. If we need your car for the day, we will keep you updated on the status of your repair via text or email. You can also arrange to use our free loaner car, free shuttle service, and after-hours drop-off and pick-up.
