Computerised Diagnostics

Car diagnostics is a very useful tool as it enables mechanics to more easily identify problems and repair them as quickly as possible. Most modern cars can generate many fault codes which get stored in the vehicle’s memory system. Some vehicles have a number of units which control areas such as engine management, brakes, suspension and even the windscreen wipers! The problem diagnosis is therefore quick and accurate and thus there can be cost savings as less time is required by the mechanic to identify a problem. Minor problems may be identified and fixed before they have a chance to escalate into big, expensive problems!

The computerised car diagnostic can tell you the following about the vehicle:

  • Ignition timing issues
  • Level of buildup in the combustion engine
  • Fuel injector performance
  • Camshaft position and the throttle opening

After the car diagnostic is performed, the computer will tag each data point to reveal what needs to be corrected and stores this code so that the technician can look into a specific area for the problem.
