Efficient Check Engine Light Diagnosis at Legend Volkswagen in Amityville, NY

Modern vehicles are equipped with some amazing technology and upgrades. But some of the most important is also the simplest. Take your dashboard warning lights, for example.

Illuminated as a yellow or orange image of an engine, this important warning light signals trouble. If it is on in your VW, bring your vehicle to Legend Volkswagen in Amityville, New York. Our certified technicians can retrieve the diagnostic code saved to the system to determine the root cause of the problem, no matter what it may be.

What Should You Do When the Check Engine Light Comes On?

What should you do first if your check engine light comes on in your Volkswagen? If it is blinking or flashing, pull over immediately. You will need to have your VW towed to our service department because this could be an indicator that your engine is misfiring. Further driving could damage the catalytic converter, requiring expensive repairs and replacements. If, on the other hand, it is a solid light, our certified technicians recommend first checking your gas cap and screwing it on tightly. If this was the issue, the light should go off in a day or two. If not, schedule an appointment at Legend Volkswagen to get to the bottom of the problem.

Causes of Your Volkswagen’s Check Engine Light

With numerous potential causes of your check engine light illuminating, it can be tricky to assess. It could be as minor as a loose gas cap after filling up your gas tank, or it could be as severe as a misfiring engine. Other causes fall in the middle, and each requires automotive maintenance or repair services, which we can help provide. Other causes include:

  • Mass airflow sensor
  • Oxygen sensor
  • Emissions purge control valve
  • Ignition coils
  • Spark plugs
  • Fuel injectors
