How to give your performance or production car the royal treatment

Experts in Everett began with Z cars, now service and modify a wide range of imports, domestics

You’re driving along and all of a sudden a light appears on your instrument console. Depending on your vehicle, it indicates something is wrong with your engine.

So do you leave it for a while, hoping it turns off by itself, or do you take steps to find out more about what might be happening?

“The car may feel like it’s running perfect. But the check engine light is a sign that something is going on with your vehicle,” says Chuck Watts, general manager and chief technical officer for Z Sport Automotive in Everett. “It may be something big, it may be something small. But if it’s something big, you’re going to be glad you brought it in to get looked after.”

Your vehicle is in good hands

The trained technicians at the company’s two Everett shops can quickly diagnose the problem and provide you with a solution, no matter what make or model or vehicle you drive. Z Sport Automotive specializes in Asian and domestic vehicles, while Z Sport Euro focuses on German and other European imports.
