Check Engine Light in Tacoma, WA

Warning Light Service -- Total Performance

Is Your Check Engine Light On?

Total Performance is here to help drivers in Tacoma, Washington when their vehicle’s malfunction indicator turns on. In most vehicles, the check engine light is easy to identify. It’s the yellow-amber light that looks like an engine or reads “SERVICE ENGINE SOON.” But what’s not easy to tell is what caused the light to come on. Your vehicle’s computer constantly monitors the health of important parts. When they fail or malfunction, the light is triggered with a trouble code that can only be read using specific equipment. Our ASE Certified technicians are not only familiar with common check engine light problems, but also possess the advanced diagnostic equipment to accurately determine their causes. They take the guesswork out of engine diagnostics, providing the exact answer you need when your check engine light comes on.
