Today’s vehicles are a bit more complex than vehicles of the past. When vehicle issues arise, it often takes a highly skilled auto mechanic with advanced knowledge and equipment/tools to get to the root cause of the issue. Our auto/vehicle diagnostic service takes the guess work out repairing your vehicle.
This service includes:
– Visual inspection of related components
– System analysis
– Research of Technical Service Bulletins
– Pin Point testing
– Component diagnosis
This diagnostic service should be performed when you are experiencing drivability issues, reduced fuel economy, have a check engine or service engine soon light illuminated/or flashing
When your Check Engine light comes on, a trouble code will be stored in one or more of your vehicle’s computers. There are certain conditions (usually 4-5 specific criteria) that have to be met for a trouble code to set, and it is vitally important that the auto mechanic who is diagnosing your car checks all of them before he/she makes a repair decision.
The diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is effectively the “tip of the iceberg”. The trouble code takes you to “an area” for further testing to properly determine where the real fault is. The diagnostic fee allows us the time to thoroughly test and accurately determine the real cause of the warning light using the professional test equipment we have invested in. Our engine diagnostic services help us to provide you with an accurate diagnosis of your vehicle’s engine problem and a repair that is done correctly the first time.
