Jean was concerned when she was having problems with her car. The check engine light came on, and so did the general repair/maintenance light. Things just didn't feel right and she knew she was going to need a professional diagnosis from a local mechanic. Jean turned to Fox Run Auto in Bear, DE for a proper inspection and recommended repairs.
"Engine light and wrench 'yellow' on dashboard, and it felt like the car was not shifting gears correctly," Jean says. "Called and dropped car off that afternoon."
Once Jean dropped her car off at Fox Run Auto, we were able to get it in the shop for a full vehicle inspection. One of our technicians ran diagnostic tests to help determine the sources of the dashboard warning lights. Then, we got the car up on the lift for a thorough inspection. Ultimately, it turned out the throttle body had failed and needed to be replaced.
The throttle body plays an important part in the vehicle's air intake system. It controls the flow of air into the engine. When it fails, the engine won't run smoothly and it could lead to other serious automotive issues. Thankfully, Jean dealt with the problem right away and we were able to get it fixed quickly.
"The throttle body was ordered and delivered overnight," Jean adds. "I picked up the car the next day and it was fixed! Yea!"
Jean's story is a good example of why it's important to pay attention to your car. Any time the check engine light (or any other dashboard/computer warning) comes on, you should have your vehicle checked out by a professional as soon as possible. This way, you can catch minor problems before they develop into something much worse.
