Check engine light comes on

Most manufacturers advise having the vehicle serviced as soon as conveniently possible. Since there are many different problems that can cause the light to illuminate, it is hard to generalize how severe a problem may be. However, often the problem will have a noticeable effect on fuel economy, performance, or driveability of your vehicle, and extended driving without fixing the problem could possibly even damage other components. Additionally, there are certain malfunctions that can cause the warning light to blink. This indicates that a malfunction is currently occurring which could be damaging your catalytic converter. Because replacement of the catalyst can be expensive, many manufacturers recommend having the vehicle serviced as soon as possible if the warning light is blinking.Type your paragraph here.


Most California vehicles have mandatory OBD equipment installed to monitor the emission controls. Finding a place to get your vehicle a quick smog check shouldn’t be too hard in this state. However, the quality smog checks and repairs you receive at All Tune and Lube are better than all

others in the area. We are a CA Licensed, 
and a Certified Smog Check Test and Repair station. We resolve all of your emissions concerns in our place, whether it’s the need for a smog check or the need for a repair. If your vehicle failed a smog test, you’ll need a qualified testing and repair station to make sure you’re compliant once again. K&S Auto welcomes any and all vehicles for emissions testing and repairs. Call us today at (714) 680-6205

​​Do I have to go to the dealer if check engine light on?

No. Properly trained and equipped independent shops are capable of utilizing the diagnostic information from the OBD II system and can make repairs just like dealers. In fact, several of the provisions incorporated in the OBD II regulation are intended to make it easier for independent shops to diagnose and repair vehicles accurately and in a cost-effective manner. It should be noted, however, that California’s emission warranty requires the vehicle manufacturer to repair under warranty any problem that the OBD II system detects if the vehicle is less than three years old and has less than 50,000 miles and only dealers are allowed to perform warranty work. Further, major emission components which exceed a defined cost limit at the time the vehicle was produced (currently about $500) are covered for 7 years or 70,000 miles – this list of covered parts, which varies from car to car, should be listed in the owner’s manual or accompanying warranty booklet that came with the vehicle. Additionally, if you have purchased a vehicle that is certified by ARB as a partial zero emission vehicle (PZEV), any problem detected by the OBD II system is covered under warranty as long as the vehicle is less than 15 years old and has less than 150,000 miles. A list of vehicles that are certified as PZEVs can be found at ARB’s Drive Clean website (select vehicles with a Smog Score of 9 to show PZEVs).
