Check This Light | Check Engine Light, Transmission

Get a Madison auto repair expert to look over your engine if the “check engine” light comes on.

You admit it, you just didn’t want to get up this morning. That feeling had less to do with the normal “don’t want to get up and go to work” blues that most people have than with the fact your “check engine” light came on while driving home last night. The prospect of having something seriously wrong with your car has you fantasizing about going to the barrel horse championships this weekend to see if you can trade your car’s horsepower for the real thing. At least horses don’t come with “check engine” lights and transmissions.

A lit “check engine” light is enough to instill dread and terror in the minds of most car owners. It’s true that the pesky thing could be warning you of something serious, like a transmission problem. But, it could equally be warning you of something minor, like a loose gas cap. That’s actually the first thing you should do – tighten the gas cap – even before you call Terry’s Car Care to have an auto mechanic check out your engine.

“Try tightening your gas cap. This often solves the problem,” Consumer Reports says. “Keep in mind that it may take several trips before the light resets. Some vehicles have a separate indicator that warns of a loose gas cap before the condition sets off the ‘check engine’ light.”

If that doesn’t work, or you notice performance problems, you definitely need to call Terry’s for help. Terry’s has been the trusted Madison auto repair company for almost 50 years. Terry’s auto mechanics are experts in all facets of car care from regular maintenance to major repairs, such as rebuilding transmissions. And, Terry’s is conveniently located in Madison’s isthmus. So, while you’re checking out the barrel racers, you’ll have free parking and quality car care.
