Check Engine Light On? Stop By For a Diagnostic Check

We’ve all had a check engine light come on at some point. And it’s usually an alarming mystery unless we carry around a code reader. Fortunately, drivers don’t have to go far for an engine diagnostic check in Tacoma.

Total Performance, Inc. is more than happy to scan your vehicle’s diagnostic system computer for faults. Once we’ve identified the trouble code and descriptions, we’ll document it and let you know so you can make an informed decision on how to move forward.

Simple diagnostic checks are the first step to finding issues, and there are countless benefits of responding immediately to a service engine light.

Common sources of triggered check engine lights:

  1. Your car’s oxygen sensor (o2 sensor) is faulty.
  2. Spark plugs need to be replaced.
  3. The mass airflow sensor is not running efficiently.
  4. A damaged catalytic converter.
  5. There are issues with speed or idle control.
