Diagnostics

Car Engine Diagnostic Test

If a warning light or fault has appeared on your dashboard, Easy Garage can help identify and trouble-shoot potential issues.

All modern cars contain on-board computers that monitor or control things like emissions levels, engine temperature and even windscreen wipers. When things go wrong, these computers produce error codes which can only be read with vehicle diagnostics equipment. You may see a warning light on your dashboard, but these only give a small part of the full picture.

Our car diagnostic check picks up these errors and identifies what they mean, so component failures can be prevented before they lead to further damage or expensive repairs!

The Facts

What is a diagnostics check?
When car warning lights illuminate on your dashboard, an engine diagnostics check can help identify the problem before more serious damage occurs.

Most modern vehicles today contain an on-board computer known as an Engine Control Unit (ECU) which continually monitors the performance of the vehicle. Sensors all around the vehicle report back to the ECU if there are problems such as low fluid levels or increased engine temperature. When an issue is identified the ECU generates an error code. The relevant dashboard warning lights will then be displayed.

There are literally hundreds of potential error codes that can only be read by specialist vehicle diagnostic equipment. While a warning light may display on the dashboard alerting you to an issue, a diagnostics check is required to understand the full extent and cause of the problem.

We use state of the art Autel equipment for vehicle diagnostics which can read the engine fault codes in your ECU’s memory. Our fully-trained technicians can then suggest any necessary repairs to get you back on the road and rectify the error so there’s no need to pay vehicle dealership prices for your diagnostics check next time a dashboard warning light appears in your car. All our diagnostic machines are kept up to date.

What does the car diagnostic equipment check for?
Example, your Check Engine light came on. Your engine is made up of hundreds of parts so the exact fault may not be obvious. Our diagnostic equipment reads the error codes generated by your vehicle’s Engine Control Unit to provide a full explanation of the issue. The car diagnostic test checks for faults across a wide range of vehicle systems including engine management, tyres, emissions, lights and comfort controls. Live data displays multiple values from around the engine to ensure all components are working as expected when rectifying an issue.
