Engine management faults

Vehicles today rely on increasingly complex electrical systems such as their engine unit, which helps to identify problems. If your car doesn’t feel right, it is likely there’s a fault in its engine management, fuel, or temperature. Similarly, there could also be a problem with your brakes, air bags or ignition.

Today’s cars have an onboard computer diagnostics (OBD) system that continually analyses the status of the vehicle’s components. Therefore if you are experiencing problems such as excessive smoke coming from the exhaust, problems starting, stalling or increased fuel consumption, we have all the latest computerised diagnostic equipment. As a result, it allows us to perform accurate testing and repairs for our customers in the area. In other words, you get your car back, fully repaired and back on the roads quickly!

What’s involved in car diagnostic testing?

Your vehicle is linked up to our engine diagnostic software so that it can identify the make and model of your vehicle. Every car is different and therefore contains a number of different codes relating to each problem area in your car. In other words, there could be hundreds of different fault codes relating to one component within your car. Having the latest equipment allows us to diagnose and repair nearly every make and model of vehicle. Once we’ve connected your car to the diagnostic tool, the system will run and generate a code so we can quickly identify any problems and get your car running smoothly. In addition to this, we continually upgrade our equipment and software which enables our skilled technicians to diagnose faults quickly and efficiently.

During your engine diagnostic test, we can search for faults in your engine, electrics, air conditioning and safety-related systems on all makes and models.
