Engine Diagnostics.  As one of Raleigh’s leading auto repair shops, Brown’s Alignment Brake & Auto Repair takes great effort to correctly diagnose problems with your automobile’s engine and or emissions control components. We have state of the art equipment to perform engine diagnostics. The OBDII (On Board Diagnostics) system gives us a way to access and pinpoint the problem by retrieving vital vehicle engine diagnostics. The OBDII system is a warning system which allows us to catch small problems before they become bigger ones down the road.  EPA requires vehicle manufacturers  to make emissions information available to the independent shops like Brown’s Alignment via the internet. So, we have access to the same information as the dealerships.

Why Does The Check Engine Dashboard Light Blink Or Flash?

Under certain conditions, the dashboard light will blink or flash. This indicates a rather severe level of engine misfire. When this occurs, the driver should reduce speed and seek service as soon as possible. Severe engine misfire over only a short period of time can seriously damage emission control system components, especially the catalytic converter, which is typically the most expensive to replace. Driver.; should also consult their vehicle owner’s manual for manufacturer specific information.
