As you drive, it can be easy to focus more on the road ahead than on the instrument gauge. That is, however, until you see a small light on the dash. Here at World Car Mazda, we want to help you feel informed about your vehicle, including the different warning lights that could appear. Keep reading to learn more!

Service Engine Soon

In this article, we’ll talk about the Service Engine Soon warning light. You’ll easily be able to recognize it, thanks to the engine-shaped icon that usually appears. What does it mean? There are several different reasons, but overall it signals that something is not quite right with the engine. As the heart of your vehicle, the engine must be carefully maintained in order to get from point A to point B with ease. If you see this warning light, head on over to your trustworthy Mazda Service Department as soon as possible!

Potential Causes

The engine is a highly complex part which works in tandem with many other components under the hood. A few of the potential problems that could cause the warning light to occur include a malfunctioning spark plug, loose or faulty wires,  a bad oxygen sensor, a damaged catalytic converter, and more. If all of this is new vocabulary for you, not to worry! Our certified technicians are happy to take a look and diagnose the issue. Then, they’ll explain the problem and let you know what the recommended next steps are.

Warning Signs

Oftentimes once the light has appeared on your dash, costly damage could already have occurred. To get ahead of the game, it helps to know the warning signs. If you’ve noticed decreased power while driving, especially at highway speeds, erratic idling, excessive roughness or noise while accelerating, or no response when you press the gas pedal, it could be time to take your vehicle in for an inspection. You should also watch out for steam or unusual leaks from the front of your car. All of these are clues that the engine is working too hard and could quickly fail. The good news is that we utilize high-tech tools to help find the issue quickly and repair it efficiently.   

What is this light on my dash? Now that you know, come and meet with us here at World Car Mazda! We want to be your trusted source for all things automotive-related.

Awesome service from everyone but the young man that greeted me and assisted me with my service, who pushed beyond being nice and slipped into condescending. He means well but he should tone it back just a tad.

Went in to get my Miata serviced and ended up trading my wife's car in for a new Mazda 6. I found the personnel easy to work with, service on my Miata was prompt and efficient, and buying a new car proved to be hassle free. Worked with Wes and his manager Brian and found both to be responsive and informative. Positive experience and I will go back.

I want to compliment Jason in the parts department. I needed several different types of fasteners for my Mazda 6. They had two of the three fasteners I needed in stock. They were out of the one I really needed immediately. Jason went above and beyond to help me. He went over to the service dept. to see if they might have some there. Jason rummaged around in a box of used fasteners and found me exactly what I needed to complete my repair. He gave me the old stuff for free and really made my day. Thank you Jason for being kind and doing more than what your job requires.

I have taken my RX 8 to World Car several times since moving to New Braunfels. Their rotary engine mechanic is first rate, and the service personnel have always been professional and courteous. I would not go anywhere else.

My fiance and I came here looking for a reliable and affordable vehicle. With Kristen's help, we found a lovely Toyota and were actually in the process of purchasing it when we decided that we'd actually prefer a slightly more recent model. Kristen and J. B. were very understanding of our change of heart and helped us to purchase the vehicle that was much better suited to our lifestyle. Thanks guys! We love our new car!

We spent considerable time waiting on answers to questions and approval of our purchase. The financing department tried to route our purchase through a California based bank with a 5% plus interest rate. I recommend getting prior approval for financing through a local bank or credit union.

Leslie and JB were more than helpful. The vehicle that we originally wanted was not in the lot because there was an appointment scheduled at another location. However, JB went above and beyond to get us a reliable vehicle. We appreciate both of their time and effort that was put into our recent experience.
