    Description of Engine Diagnostics and Performance

    Each vehicle that has been designed since 1996 is equipped with an On-Board Diagnostics System to track engine performance. Discrepancies in performance levels are recorded by the computer system in your car. When the “test engine” or “repair engine” light is shown, the next step will be to try a diagnostic engine repair or a tune-up engine. Engine diagnostics allow our staff to gather useful information about your engine’s operating state. Experience gained during a diagnosis of an engine can dictate the degree of recommended engine repairs. The most popular diagnostic trouble codes are created as a reaction to powertrain malfunctions. In the end, frequent engine tune-ups are needed to maximize engine efficiency. Tune-ups are perhaps one of the most effective ways of avoiding unexpected engine problems. Our workers will remove the spark plugs, spark plug cables, air filters, fuel filters and the cap and rotor distributors in your car during an engine tune-up. Our experts will test emission standards, fuel lines, belts and hoses as well. Diagnostic engines and frequent engine tune-ups will help prolong your vehicle’s life and boost your engine safety.

    Benefits of Engine Diagnostics and Performance

    Although routine maintenance of the engine can help ensure that your engine is still running in peak conditions, there are also signs you may be looking to suggest a need for engine repair service. The “test engine” or “run engine” light is a sure sign that an expert will look at your engine sooner rather than later. Most of the time, the On-Board Diagnostics Program for your vehicle can identify an engine problem and store the relevant repair code, which a member of our service team will access.Slow-cranking, rough idling, stalling, scratching, or pinging when driving are all indicators you can check for engine repairs or diagnostics to assess the full extent of your engine trouble. A reduction in gas mileage and observable power loss during acceleration are both indicators of an imminent engine tune-up service or engine repair. Engine warning lights are helping drivers alert them to minor issues before they become major repairs. Make sure to follow up with our team if the On-Board Diagnostics Program on your vehicle identifies an engine problem.
