Q: Might be time for a tune-up

asked by on

My Service Engine light came on, but it might just be time for a tune-up. I am not sure.

Hi there. The Service Engine Soon Light will come on for multiple reasons. Without knowing the complaint or code the computer has stored, it is very difficult to guess what it might be. I suggest you have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, scan your computer for the Service Engine Soon Light and diagnose any codes received.
