Check Engine Light Repair in Stockton, CA

If your vehicle’s computer has illuminated the check engine light, it’s time to visit your friendly local auto repair shop – Toole’s Garage Stockton. We are a full service auto repair shop that can offer comprehensive care for your car, including check engine light diagnostics and repairs. Check engine light can indicate a wide range of problems – from mundane to very serious, up to and including engine damage or catalytic converter damage.

If the check engine light is flashing, we recommend that you pull over as soon as it is safe to do so – do not drive the car, have it towed to a repair shop.  

If the car is driving normally, and the check engine light is illuminated but not flashing, you should call an auto repair garage and schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience. Driving for prolonged time with the check engine light “on” can cause expensive damage to your vehicle.

Check engine light can indicate a wide variety of problems – form something as simple as a worn out gas cap, to mass airflow sensor problems, faulty fuel injector, faulty EGR valve, faulty TPS ( throttle position sensor), to worn out spark plugs ( especially if you feel the engine misfire), to emission system problems, including failing catalytic converter.

Our clients sometimes use a code reader and call us with the code(s), asking what would the repair cost. Unfortunately, the code is only a road sign – it tells a professional mechanic which systems and subsystems to look at to determine the root cause of the problem. This cannot be done on the phone – if anybody diagnoses your vehicle on the phone, they are guessing. Their guess may be correct, or it could be wrong.

When you bring your vehicle to Toole’s Garage Stockton, we will not guess – you will be greeted by our friendly staff, while your vehicle will be in the highly capable hands of our nationally ASE certified technicians.
