Repairing vehicles has always been about experienced mechanics and quality parts. But then engines became more complex, and more electronics and digital components found their way into vehicles. A practiced eye and skilled hand are still essential parts of the repair process, but today, we need to know more about what those digital components are doing.
Computer diagnostics for all kinds of engines use specialized equipment and software to access those complex systems. It gives us a detailed picture of what is going on in your engine and it’s management system.
When we know where the problems are, it’s quicker, easier and cheaper to repair, replace and tune up the parts that need it. So, you can get back on the road faster, safer, and better than ever.
When you book your vehicle into our shop for diagnostics and repairs, we do all the usual things. We get information about what you’re experiencing, visually inspect your engine, and try to narrow the problem down to a few likely suspects.
Computer diagnostics equipment for trucks and cars plugs directly into your vehicle and accesses all the electronic and digital components that manage your vehicles’ engine and performance.
Information is downloaded from those components, and where there’s a problem, we’ll see an error code. That error code tells us where the problem is, what’s gone wrong, and how we should fix it.
Armed with digital engine diagnostics, our mechanics can make the right repairs, at the right time, and get the job done right first time.
In the past, even the best mechanics sometimes had to make educated guesses. Computer based diagnostics takes guesses out of the equation, for more accurate fault finding and better diagnostic capabilities.
When you can skip hours of diagnostics and trial and error, customers save on repairs. With computer-based engine diagnostics, there are fewer labor hours required to get your truck fixed and back on the road, so you can save a bundle.
Computer based engine diagnostics has allowed our team to break the cycle of time-consuming repairs. Within record time of arriving for your appointment, our team can plug our high-tech equipment into your vehicle and find the problem. So, you don’t wait longer than necessary!
It’s important to note that there’s no one size fits all vehicles digital engine diagnostics system. Different manufacturers and different models might use different hardware and software, and error codes might be different.
Error codes also change over time, and it still takes an experienced mechanic to accurately assess and diagnose the engine diagnostics information.
So, while there might be DIY equipment for computer-based engine diagnostics out there, we don’t recommend that you use it for anything other than informational purposes.
Trust our team to get the readings right, and then take the right action to fix the problem.
You might find digital diagnostics elsewhere online. Some people call digital diagnostics for your engine a “software update.” Other people might refer to firmware update.
Some people call the process of plugging in and diagnosing your car, and then fixing the problem “resetting your engine.”
Whatever you call it though, there are several steps involved.
First, you use the hardware and software to scan the vehicle. Then you interpret the error codes. Next, you repair the problem that is causing the error, and finally, you check that the error code is gone.
There’s a bit more to it than just resetting your engine, but when it’s done right, it’s a very efficient way to get the job done right!
We fix everything, including but not limited to:
