This is an area that really pays to have a highly trained technician diagnose the problem and not “throw parts at it”.

Since 1983 Independent Motors has performed thousands of engine check light diagnoses and is still going strong.

Independent Mototors Auto Repair Shop

Highly Experienced Technicians

Modern day vehicles provide a check engine light error code to help with diagnosing the problem. The code is meant to help direct the technician in the general area and not necessarily isolate the exact problem; code P0300 is an engine misfire code, which could mean one of many different possible component failures.

Anyone can “pull the code” but truly diagnosing the problem is where the expertise comes in.
At Independent Motors our ASE certified automobile technicians have over 75 combined years of experience diagnosing check engine lights.

We start by reading the code for free to better give you an estimate on what the next step is. Based on our experience, it’s more cost effective to thoroughly diagnose the problem before replacing parts.

Do you have Check Engine Light repair questions?

A: The vehicle’s onboard computer(s) monitor many operations while the engine is running. If the computer registers something is not within the proper specifications it will illuminate the Check Engine Light. This can be anything from a leaking gas cap, bad spark plug wires to a worn exhaust system.

A: The simple answer is no, especially if you do not experience any symptoms while driving. You can stop by Independent Motors without an appointment and we will read the error code and advise you what the next step is.
A: This is a more critical warning sign. You should make an appointment ASAP and drive the vehicle as little as possible until getting it diagnosed.
A: No, there are codes that come on when the catalytic converters are worn and not performing like new, but will still pass an emission test. Then there are engine misfires that can cause engine damage if not addressed.
