Diagnostics

diagnosticsIf your vehicle is not running as smoothly as it should, it could be a result of a broken part, engine issues, or a myriad of other problems. Getting the right diagnosis for your car can mean the difference between a simple, quick fix and a lengthy, expensive repair. Before you decide to get your car repaired, it’s a good idea to have a full diagnostics test done to get a more accurate snapshot of the problem. At George Automotive Services, we provide you with a complete diagnostics report and guide you through the repair process so you can drive away in confidence.

Modern Vehicle Diagnostics

All newer vehicles have something called an onboard computer system installed. This system is designed to hold an assortment of special codes that indicate to your mechanic when something goes wrong. When your check engine light or your service engine soon light comes on, that usually means the computer has noted a recurring code. The average consumer cannot see nor gain access to these codes unless they have the right tools and software. An experienced mechanic can perform a test to gain access to the codes and decipher them in order to troubleshoot the problem.

Don’t leave your vehicle’s reliability to chance. If your check engine light has come on repeatedly or it’s staying on, bring it to us for a full test. We’ll be able to see all the pertinent codes and then make the proper recommendations for any repair you will need. These thorough tests allow us to gain a better idea of exactly what’s happening with your car. Each make and model of vehicle uses very specific codes, and we can determine what they mean for your vehicle.

The Next Steps

Once we read the codes and determine the issue, we’ll let you know exactly what we find. We will also do a brief driving test to see if the codes are matching with the symptoms. As soon as we diagnose the problem, we provide you with a free estimate that spells out every issue and its cost. Our goal is for you to have a transparent mechanic who understands the many nuances that vehicles have. After the diagnostic test, we’ll perform all needed repairs or service so you can get back to driving and enjoying your normal routine worry-free.
