The check engine light might come on in your vehicle. It’s an amber colored light that shows on your dashboard. In newer vehicles it might just be a problem with your fuel cap not being screwed on tight enough (or a worn fuel cap), causing the vehicle to fail the self-diagnostic evaporative emission test. All St. Thomas drivers need to do is go to their fuel cap and verify that it is tight. If that was the problem, the light will turn off and everything will be fine within one or two days.

At The Auto Guys, we advise St. Thomas drivers to resist the temptation to have someone “clear” the codes to turn off your vehicle check engine light. This erases important diagnostic information that your The Auto Guys service advisor needs to diagnose the underlying problem for the check engine light and any other pending problems that may be stored in the computer.

If the problem is still there – you still see the light – bring your vehicle in to The Auto Guys in St. Thomas and have it checked out as soon as possible.

Stop by or give us a call.
