Computer Diagnostics


Your modern vehicle's engine is a highly sophisticated piece of equipment. Federal Exhaust Emission and Fuel Economy regulations demand that today's vehicles use electronic engine control systems to curb carbon emissions and increase fuel efficiency. With advanced control systems taking the place of simple engine components, common maintenance services such as tune-ups become less vital. Your vehicle still requires regular services, such as spark plug and filter replacements. You will also need computerized analyses of your vehicle's control computer. Our factory-trained technicians provide these basic services.


HERE'S HOW YOUR MODERN VEHICLE'S CONTROL COMPUTER OPERATES

A network of sensors and switches convert and monitor engine operating conditions into electrical signals. The computer receives this information, and, based on information and instructions coded within this savvy computer program, it sends commands to three different systems: ignition, fuel, and emission control. When a problem arises, the "check engine" light turns on.

If your vehicle's check engine light is on, then bring it in and let our trained professionals check it out to determine if the "check engine" indicator is a real problem or just a sensor/computer issue.
