Any reputable repair shop can diagnose a check engine lamp situation. Try searching the AAA website for any AAAR repair shops in your area. The shop will need an up to date computer scanner to determine the DTC (diagnostic trouble code)stored in your cars computer. Once the code or codes are determined then the appropriate diagnosis can begin.
