Not All Check Engine Lights Are Created Equal

You can’t go to Auto Zone and do self-analysis with your check engine light.  For proper service, you need to go in and inspect it before replacing parts.  We use updated computers to give accurate assessments.

You might not be thinking of auto repairs as you’re driving around the Tucson and Foothills area, but suddenly your check engine light turns on! Uh-oh! You think it could be something simple, so you do a Google search. But as the auto mechanics at Primarily Japanese will tell you, a simple search won’t cut it these days.
