Engine Diagnostics and Performance Systems

Your “Check Engine Light” informs you that sensors in your engine may not be functioning properly.

Today’s vehicles use technology to increase performance, while decreasing fuel consumption
and the regularity of needing a tune up. However, the ability of your car’s computerized control
system is limited when the sensors and components that deliver information don’t function
properly.

“Check Engine Light”

When your “Check Engine Light” comes on, bring your car in to Lamb’s. This alert informs our professional technicians that a sensor is providing data that is out of range or not providing data at all, and the related system needs review to determine why the sensor is not functioning properly. Lamb’s ASE certified technicians review the entire diagnostic data-stream to determine the real cause of the warning, rather than just replace the sensor that alerted you of the problem. This ensures that you don’t waste money by replacing parts that are just the messenger and not the problem.

Bring your vehicle to the certified technicians at Lamb’s right away if you experience any of these warnings
