Engine Diagnostics

Just like the health of your body, your vehicle needs regular checks to ensure that it’s in good health. Regular engine diagnostics can help you detect any problems before they get out of hand, saving you a lot of money in the long run. These tests use a computer and specialized software that can quickly and accurately find out the root cause of the problem. With a thorough engine diagnostics test, you’re taking a proactive step toward maintaining a vehicle that will serve you well for many miles to come.

You don’t just need an engine diagnostics test when the check engine light comes on. Add this test to your regularly scheduled vehicle maintenance so you can always cut any problems off before they get out of control. Our high-tech diagnostics equipment uses processors, sensors, and microchips that can read the vehicle quickly and create a thorough report of any potential or current issues. These tests can uncover problems with your transmission, engine, brake system, exhaust, and many other major components. The test can also determine any issues with the fuel injector, airflow, coolant, ignition coils, and much more.

The codes from our diagnostics tests will allow us to find out which parts of your engine may be in trouble. While they are not going to spell out exactly what’s wrong, they give us the ability to narrow down the issue and make a better recommendation based on what we find. These tests are fast and easy to perform, and they could result in you saving a ton of money on future repairs if the problem is caught early. We use the test results as a guide to help us discover exactly what is causing the issue.

Not only will our engine diagnostics find potential problems, but it will also help us see a history of your car’s engine. These results will allow us to see a complete picture so we can have a better idea of exactly what needs to be done. You should have a test performed at least once a year, or any time you notice, smell, see, or hear something that seems “off.” You should also have a thorough diagnostics test run any time you’re thinking of buying a used car. This test will give you a clearer picture of any problems from the past, present, or future so you can have peace of mind.
