Diagnostics Service

  1. Initial Consultation: We'll start by discussing the symptoms or issues you've noticed with your car, such as poor performance, strange noises, or warning lights on the dashboard.

  2. Visual Inspection: We'll perform a visual inspection of your vehicle to look for any obvious signs of damage or wear that could be causing the problem.

  3. Onboard Diagnostics (OBD) Scan: Most cars manufactured after 1996 are equipped with an Onboard Diagnostics (OBD) system, which stores diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) when it detects an issue. We'll connect a specialized scanner to your car's OBD port to retrieve these codes, which will help us pinpoint the source of the problem.

  4. Interpretation of Diagnostic Codes: We'll analyze the diagnostic trouble codes and use our knowledge of your vehicle's systems to determine the root cause of the issue.

  5. Additional Testing: Depending on the initial findings, we may need to perform additional tests using specialized tools and equipment. This can include electrical testing, pressure tests, or component-specific tests to diagnose the problem further.

  6. Recommended Repairs: Once we've identified the issue, we'll provide you with a detailed explanation of the problem and our recommendations for repair or maintenance. We'll also give you an estimate of the costs involved in fixing the issue.

  7. Repair and Re-test: If you decide to proceed with the recommended repairs, we'll perform the necessary work and then re-test your vehicle to ensure the issue has been resolved.

The specifics of a diagnostics process can vary depending on the make and model of your foreign car and the nature of the issue being investigated. Regular diagnostic checks can help catch potential problems early, preventing more extensive and costly repairs in the future. It's a good idea to consult a professional auto mechanic if you're experiencing any issues with your vehicle or if a warning light appears on your dashboard.
