Here are some things you can do before arranging for that Pre Purchase Inspection, including a handy check list you can use. Be sure to make careful notes so you can share your concerns with the technician who performs the final evaluation on your used car.

Be sure that you know what your check engine light looks like and where it is located. The check engine light is located on your dashboard where the instrument lights are. Different cars use different identifiers, so be sure to check out your vehicle manual so that you know exactly what your check engine light looks like.
