Car Diagnostics

Most modern vehicles are controlled by computers to such an extent, that when there is a problem, the only way to locate it, is to hook the vehicle up to a diagnostics machine and run it through a series of tests. Even this can lead a mobile mechanic to the wrong area because one fault can throw up a series of errors.

A car diagnostic test is basically the starting point for some experienced troubleshooting to begin. Luckily, we employ some of the very best mechanics who have over 15 years’ experience in running these vehicle diagnostics from their mobile garages in San Diego.

The mobile vehicle diagnostic tool our skilled mechanics use is exactly the same as you would find in any brick and mortar garage. This enables us to keep car diagnostic cost to an affordable level, and also, we can perform these tests at any location a customer desires.

Engine Management Lights – Reasons and Symptoms

  • Lack of performance and Increased gas consumption
  • Engine vacuum leaks – this produces fuel or ignition problem symptoms and upsets the air to fuel ratio
  • Catalytic converter problems
  • Spark plug cables, or ignition coil problems
  • Spark plugs or rotor faults
  • EGR valve problems – the function of this is to help reduce polluting emissions

 

If you have one of these problem areas or any of the many others. It can lead to the engine warning light to remain on or flash intermittently.

If the light is permanently lit, this could be highlighting a problem which isn’t yet severe. Mobile Mechanic of San Diego recommends you call as soon as possible because these problems will never vanish without a skilled mechanics intervention.

When the light shines as the engine starts, this is okay because the vehicle is running its own diagnostic tests looking for errors.
