An ominous glow pulls your gaze down to your dashboard--and, groans abound, your check engine light is on.

Don't panic--but do act. The check engine light is one of the few indicators on your dashboard that could mean a variety of things. While your tire pressure light only refers to air pressure, and your low gas light just means you need to fill up soon, the little glowing engine could be just an inconvenience... or a big problem.

Don't wait around to find out which.

The team at the Wellesley Mazda service center can diagnose your issues using state-of-the-art technology and computer systems, so that you can get back out on the roads as soon as possible.

And while we do encourage you to get your engine checked out as soon as you can, you don't need to be fearful. Most commonly, the check engine light is triggered because of issues with one of these five components or parts:

  • Loose gas cap
  • O2/oxygen sensor
  • Spark plugs/plug wires
  • Catalytic converter
  • Mass airflow sensor
