Car Diagnostics FAQs

What can a car diagnostic test tell you?

Diagnostic tests can reveal problems within a car’s engine, transmission, exhaust system, brakes, fuel injector, air flow and coolant, ignition coils, and throttle.

It is important to note, however, that car diagnostic tests cannot determine the exact problem that triggered the check engine light. The code given by the equipment simply alerts technicians to which engine or component parameters are out of range. Our technicians are experts and have the technical know-how to determine what the issue is.

What are car diagnostic codes?

A car diagnostic code is what causes the warning light to illuminate on your dashboard. These faults are picked up by your Engine Control Unit (ECU). An ECU continually monitors the performance of the vehicle and can self-diagnose faults - as soon as the warning light appears, you should take your car to your local garage for it to be run through a diagnostic check.
