An illuminated check engine light means a vehicle will not pass a Texas emissions inspection.
Is the check engine light on in your car? When it lights up, it’s natural to be concerned about what might be wrong. In October, the North Central Texas Council of Governments is partnering with local automotive repair facilities to conduct a series of car care clinics.
An illuminated check engine light means your vehicle will not pass the annual Texas emissions inspection, which is required to get it registered. The free clinics will provide opportunities to speak with certified technicians about problems and how they should be addressed. The issues may cost less than you think to repair. It could be as simple as a bad gas cap that needs to be replaced.
The clinics are not just for motorists trying to diagnose engine issues. Technicians will also offer free multipoint inspections to anyone who attends.
Regular maintenance is urged as a way to help ensure vehicles run more efficiently, which improves air quality and can save consumers money in the long term.
