Engine Repair Questions and Answers

  • Why Is My Check Engine Light On?

    There are hundreds potential culprits if your check engine light comes on, ranging from ignition to transmission. The most common issues are emissions related, including faulty air flow, catalytic converters, spark plugs, or even a loose gas cap. It’s also possible that a short or a malfunctioning sensor could trigger an error code in your onboard diagnostic system. A flashing check engine light is more serious and requires immediate attention, especially in combination with oil pressure or temperature warnings.

  • What Should I Do If My Check Engine Light Comes On?

    It’s never a good idea to ignore your check engine light. If your check engine light is on, but isn’t flashing, it’s an early warning sign and indicates that your vehicle should be diagnosed soon. If your check engine light is flashing, it indicates an urgent mechanical problem and that your vehicle is not safe to drive.

  • What Are The Most Common Signs Of Engine Problems?

    Along with your check engine light, other indicators of potential issues including difficulty accelerating, loss of power, decreased gas mileage, inconsistent idling, knocking, pinging, trouble starting, or intermittent stalling.

  • How Can I Diagnose Minor Engine Issues?

    The onboard diagnostic system classifies hundreds of error messages for all vehicles manufactured after 1996 in four categories: body, chassis, powertrain, and network integration (computer). At Fat Boys, we plug in a scanning tool to correctly identify the issue. Then, if need be, we can repair any problems and clear the code.

  • If My Vehicle Is Older Than 1996, How Can I Tell If My Engine Needs Service?

    Troubleshooting potential engine problems in older cars can be frustrating and time consuming. Without the benefit of modern onboard diagnostic systems, the best way to diagnose engine issues is to test drive the vehicle and pay close attention for common warning signs such as decreased horsepower, rough idling, unusual noises and smells, or engine stalling.
