Check engine lightFew things strike fear into drivers more quickly than the sudden activation of their Check Engine Light. Albuquerque is full of enough surprises without dealing with an unknown vehicle issue. Here at Advantage Automotive, have assembled the finest mechanics in the city to look past the simple data and address the heart of the issue so that your car remains as reliable as possible. In order to understand check engine light repair, it is important to know a little bit more about the process, the level of expertise required.

Check Engine Light Repairs are often misunderstood as being a simple process of plugging in a computer, taking note of the error code and doing whatever the computer suggests. While this does occur at some auto repair shops, we at Advantage Automotive know this is like slapping a bandaid on a gunshot wound.

The most important thing to do when it comes to Check Engine Light repair is to address the issues which caused the error code in the first place. This is more difficult than it sounds because error codes are famously ambiguous in nature, and offer very little information on what the vehicle actually needs. The real skill in this process comes from a combination of understanding core mechanic principals, knowledge of the specific vehicle, and years of experience under the hood.
