Complete Vehicle Diagnostics – Mission Viejo, CA
Getting a complete vehicle diagnostic done on your car can reveal a wealth of knowledge regarding how different systems are working in your car. These systems include the exhaust system, gas tank, oil tank, transmission and more. Today’s vehicles are equipped with computer processors, sensors and microchips that can be linked to a vehicle diagnostic computer or machine and can pinpoint any problems that may exist. While there are handheld scanning machines that you can use at home for this, it is better to have this service performed at a licensed vehicle repair facility. Not only are the technicians better able to read and interpret the codes, they also know what to look for visually in the vehicle.
What does a vehicle diagnostic check for?
This type of diagnostic test can tell you:
- Throttle opening
- Crankshaft position
- Camshaft position
- Coolant and air temperature
- Rpm levels for the engine
- Whether or not all of the ignition coils are firing and which one, if any is having issues
- Fuel injector performance
- The level of any existing buildup that may be in the combustion engine
- Ignition timing issues
- And much more
Once the diagnostics are complete, the machine or computer that the car is hooked up to will tag each of the data points and reveal anything that needs to receive attention. The machine or computer then stores this information and lets the technician know where the problem is.
