Vehicle Health Index is published by CarMD and they just released the latest list of the most frequent 2020 repairs that triggered the Check Engine Light.
First position on the list is occupied by catalytic converter replacement. Sadly, this is due to large number of catalytic converter thefts.
Second position on the list belongs to oxygen sensor replacement. This, again, is the results of catalytic converter thefts – very frequently oxygen sensor gets damaged when thieves steal the catalytic converter.
(At Adams Autoworx Albany we highly recommend, and offer, installation of a catalytic converter shield which discourages theft).
Items 3-6 are typical items that you would expect to show up on such a list:
ignition coil replacement
spark plug replacement
mass air flow sensor replacement
fuel cap replacement
(yes, that pesky gas cap can trigger check engine light; on the other hand, it sure is nice to find out that repair cost is $20 and not $2000 as it can be with catalytic converter replacement).
Naturally, at Adams Autoworx in Albany we provide all of the repairs listed above, along with catalytic converter shield installation.
