Check Engine Light

Trust Z’s Car Care for all your alternator repair, replacement, and maintenance needs!

Providing Car Repairs for Over 35 Years

The purpose of the check engine light is to warn you that your car’s onboard diagnostic system has detected a problem with the engine, transmission, or emissions control system. So when one of the symbols lights up, that means there’s something wrong, and it needs fixing immediately.

If your car is experiencing any issues, all you have to do is to head over to Z’s Car Care. Allow us to service your vehicle, and we promise to get it back to its optimal condition as soon as possible. We have the required expertise and equipment to diagnose and fix any vehicle problem.

What Services Are Involved With the Check Engine Light?

If your check engine light illuminates, bring your car to Z’s Car Care immediately. We’ll determine the problem and resolve it right away. Here are some of the services we provide:
The first thing that must be done when the check engine light comes on is to check the problem. Let us at Z’s Car Care go through the diagnostic trouble code with a scan tool to see which component or system needs servicing.
When your check engine light goes on, your engine may be experiencing damages that can lead to serious issues, such as misfires or rough idling. Z’s Car Care can easily handle such problems by tuning your engine.
Your car’s emission system may be going through issues, such as a faulty oxygen sensor or failed catalytic converter. Our technicians can solve such problems to ensure that your car meets the emissions standards.
If your check engine light illuminates, it may also be a sign of fuel system issues. Bring your car to Z’s Car Care right away. It may be experiencing issues, such as a faulty fuel injector or a damaged fuel pressure regulator, so allow us to fix them for you.
Faulty sensors or wiring system issues in a car’s electrical system can lead to harmful situations that any driver would want to avoid. Once your check engine light warns you about such problems, bring your vehicle to Z’s Car Care. We’ll identify and solve the problem quickly.

I really like this business. It was easy to schedule an appointment and my car was ready faster than expected. The guys are really friendly and always do a nice job. They never try to sell me a bunch of work my car doesn’t need.

Z’s is under new ownership but the excellent quality I had before is still in full swing. They diagnosed my vehicle problem and found the right parts and fixed it all with less than a 24 hour turnaround. No easy feat considering the vehicle is 27 years old.

The best car care we’ve ever received! We have taken two of our cars in to Z’s, one for a repair and the other for troubleshooting. Customer care was incredible! They quickly and very reasonably fixed our first car (while communicating with us throughout the day) and assisted us with figuring out the issue with our second car at no charge. We won’t be taking our cars anywhere else!

We have only used Zs as our mechanic for all of our vehicles since our first cars back in the 80's. These guys really know there stuff, and we are always quite satisfied with their service and thriftiness. Great service and fair prices. Wouldn't even consider anyone else to work on our cars. Thank you Delbert! 🙂

My family and I have been taking our vehicles to Z's Car Care for 21 yrs now. Everything from a 1964 Ford Pickup to a 2014 Honda Civic Coupe, and they have always been able to handle whatever problem it has been. Knowledgeable, very well priced and beyond both of these trust worthy. And the staff and owners are an absolute joy to work with, a repair shop you can always count on.

I depend on Z's for all my car care needs. They do great work and keep careful records, so if you can't remember the last time you had a brake job, they can look it up for you. Also, if a part they sell fails while still under warranty, they will tell you that, too. I simply won't let anybody else touch my car.

I've been a customer of Z's for well over 10 years and everything I have taken there has been explained thoroughly and repaired correctly. The few times in which parts that have been replaced that don't work properly, Delbert and team stand by their work and repair or replace on warranty, free of charge. Z's is really the only place you want to take any of your vehicles. Honest assessments and repair... And they stand behind it all.

Very prompt, professional, thorough and honest. That's probably the best combination one wants in looking for a car repair/service company. My wife and I had a pre-purchase inspection done with them and we were well pleased. We purchased the vehicle.

Absolutely the best customer service I've received in more years than I can remember. Sent step-sons truck there to get ready for the drive to his next duty station, after 3yrs on Okinawa. Gave a great discount for his military service, plus delivered back to my house, since I'd had surgery and was not able to drive it. Truly wonderful people and great mechanics.
