Don't Let the Check Engine Light Turn You Off From Making Needed Repairs



The top 10 check engine light repairs from the annual CarMD Vehicle Health Index reinforces what the Car Care Council has been saying for years. Motorists who ignore the check engine light get less miles per gallon and could face costly repairs down the road.



"Many people fear that when the check engine light comes on, it is going to mean several hundred or more dollars in repairs, so they ignore the light and hope the problem goes away," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "Data from CarMD makes it clear that not addressing the cause of an illuminated check engine light can cost you in terms of wasted fuel and more expensive repairs in the future."



When the check engine light is illuminated, it usually means that the vehicle system, such as the ignition, fuel injection or emission control, is not operating properly, even if the vehicle appears to be running normally. The top 10 most common check engine light repairs as reported by the recently released CarMD Vehicle Health Index are as follows.




  1. Replace O2 sensor(s)

  2. Replace ignition coil(s) and spark plug(s)

  3. Replace catalytic converter

  4. Inspect fuel cap and tighten or replace as necessary

  5. Replace evaporative emissions (EVAP) purge control valve

  6. Replace mass airflow (MAF) sensor

  7. Replace ignition coil(s)

  8. Replace evaporative emissions (EVAP) purge solenoid

  9. Replace fuel injector(s)

  10. Replace thermostat



"Following a recommended maintenance schedule and addressing small problems before they become bigger ones will help extend the life of your car and minimize check engine related repairs," continued White. "It's important to note that most of the common check engine problems negatively impact a car's fuel economy and become more costly to repair if service is delayed."

    If I could more than 5 stars, I would. I have taken my cars here for many years - even in the Foothill Foreign Auto days. David and his staff are always honest and fair. Pricing for minor or major repairs are much lower than a Dealership. Highly recommended.

    Angie and the team have been servicing our cars and I must say that I have never had such a great experience with an auto repair company. We had a problem with an intermittent noise in our van that other shops couldn't find. They found it!

    They had installed a radiator a couple of months ago and unfortunately it was defective (no fault of theirs) so I took it back around 4:00 pm on a Friday. Since this is my only vehicle and I had plans for the weekend they opted to fix it there right away. They contacted their parts warehouse and had a radiator delivered right away and had me back on the road very quickly. Thank you to everyone at Save On.

    I am so happy with the service I was provided from this team. I brought them a car that had a multitude of problems because I bought it from a guy on offer up who thought he was a mechanic and ruined the car. They took care of everything and all for a VERY reasonable price. As soon as you walk into their lobby you are put at ease because you can see they are AAA certified, have awards for their service, and best of all you see a picture of their employees showing what a close knit group they are. They are a family owned business and they definitely treat you as if you are being welcomed into their family because they truly take care of you! This team is dedicated to providing top notch service to their customers to ensure peace of mind. Angie has wonderful customer service and is very professional. I was so grateful to have someone who was willing to explain everything they worked on so I didn't just sign a piece of paper without knowing exactly what I was signing for. I will definitely be a returning customer for regular services such as oil changes. If you are looking for a new mechanic that you know you can trust please go to Save On Auto Care. I highly recommend taking your car here!
