Audi Check Engine Light Diagnostic in Fort Lauderdale

Audi Check Engine Light Diagnostic Near Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Florida

There are few things as bothersome and worrying as having your car’s check engine light come on while driving. Technically called the MIL, or malfunction indicator lamp, but commonly referred to as the check engine light, it’s a sure sign that you’ll need to bring your car in for service. At Euromotive, we offer an expert Audi check engine light diagnostic to determine what the trouble is and get you back on the road as quickly as possible.

What’s the Trouble?

Your check engine light is designed to turn on when the car’s computer notices a problem in one of the vehicle’s systems. It’s an indicator that tells drivers there’s something wrong and it needs to be diagnosed. In some cases, driving the car for too long with the check engine light on might cause damage to the engine or transmission. In others, you might not pass your emissions test. An Audi check engine light diagnostic will help determine what the trouble is.

The Most Common Reasons for an Audi Check Engine Light Diagnostic Test

While your check engine light might come on for any number of reasons, we see some more often than others. These include the following:

  • Loose Gas Cap: Today’s vehicles are manufactured to much tighter tolerances in terms of emissions, and the gas cap is part of that system. If it is loose or missing, the fuel system won’t pressurize properly, triggering the check engine light.
  • Oxygen Sensor(s): Your car has multiple oxygen sensors embedded in the exhaust designed to detect oxygen levels and adjust the system for optimum operation. If one or more fails, your check engine light will come on (and your car won’t pass an emissions test, either).
  • Catalytic Converter Failure: The catalytic converter is part of your exhaust and emissions system. Its job is to destroy harmful gases, but they eventually fail and will need to be replaced. When they fail, your check engine light will come on (and your car won’t pass an emissions test).
  • Mass Airflow Sensor: The mass airflow sensor plays a role in the air intake system and helps regulate the air/fuel mixture combusted in the engine. If it fails or experiences a malfunction, the check engine light will come on.

How Does An Audi Check Engine Light Diagnostic Work?

At Euromotive, we use advanced automotive diagnostic tools. We’ll connect to the OBDII port on your car and interface with the computer to identify the current code and any historical codes it might have stored. Based on that information, we can then begin to diagnose the problem and then repair your car.
