A proper car diagnostic test is the first (crucial!) step towards working out a solution. Without properly working out what’s wrong you can waste a lot of time and money chasing down possible causes without actually solving the root cause.
The team at Auto Edge are experts in auto diagnostic service, equipped with the latest technology from Bosch and years of experience.
It’s better to test & not guess.
Don’t allow an untrained workshop play ‘swap-a-tronics’ with your car. This will cost you more in the end or not get the fault repaired correctly.
Problems are identified FAST – no waiting around while endless tests are done.
Save money on repairs by fixing faults before they spiral out of control and cause damage to other areas.
Your car’s emissions and electric systems are tested to ensure you aren’t wasting money on unburned fuel.
These are just a few faults that warrant a car diagnostic test being done. If you answered yes, to any of the above then:
The reason that diagnostics have become more important is that most vehicles now have computers that control the function of the operations from increasing fuel supply to allowing the air conditioning to operate. These computers operate within a preferred scale and if it goes out of range then problems will result.
The check engine light will come on and alert you that there is fault with your car only if its safety related or to do with fuel emissions. But there are codes that won’t be apparent to the driver but will show up next time your car is scanned.
Correct servicing of your vehicle will catch these faults before they become an issue if your servicing centre has the right equipment and is actually doing the test as part of their service.
Sometimes these checks are done and a fault may occur with an electronic component. You may need to have your vehicle examined and a number diagnostic tests will be needed to pinpoint the defective part.
To better explain how all this works, here is an example of how Auto Edge would deal with an engine misfire. The car owner reported that the car was running rough, the vehicle was vibrating and had black smoke coming out of the exhaust, so this is what we did:
