Mobile Diagnostics & Evaluations

Vehicle diagnostic tests identify hidden problems that affect your vehicle’s performance. When a warning light comes on, it’s an obvious sign that something is wrong. However, there are times when you know something is wrong with your vehicle even when the warning lights aren’t flashing.

Our diagnostic tests will pinpoint the reason(s) why your vehicle isn’t performing at its best. We use factory diagnostic tools that connect to the onboard computer, components, sensors and logs to detect underlying issues. Once identified, we can give you a detailed breakdown of what needs to be addressed to make your car run new again.

EFI Diagnostics

Before electronic fuel injection (EFI) was introduced, cars depended on mechanical adjustments to fuel flow, airflow and even time. However, electronic control units (ECU) combined with EFI systems, have dramatically altered the way vehicles perform.

As long as the ECU and EFI systems are working properly, everything is in order. However, if a sensor or component fails, and the system can go downhill fast. As these are complex systems, it’s not as simple as replacing a part and going on your way.

In most cases, a warning light will flash or stay on to let you know something is wrong. If so, that’s great (i.e. the best-case scenario). However, there are times when you know something is wrong, but no light is present.

In either case, having someone connect to the ECU and the system components can quickly identify underlying and hidden issues that need to be corrected.

There are plenty of over-the-counter tools that can provide some information. However, they cannot access the deepest parts of the computer system. For that, you need a factory diagnostic tool.

We have factory tools and readers for most major vehicle brands. As such, we can see exactly what’s wrong. Equipped with this information, you can avoid unnecessary and costly repairs.

Steering Angle Sensor Reset

When your vehicle pulls to one side of the road or the other, this is called being out of alignment. Most cars are equipped with steering angle sensors. These sensors help to identify if the vehicle is aligned correctly.

Having this corrected is as simple as hooking it to a factory programmer and making the adjustments suggested by the tool/manufacturer. The process is rather simple and can be handled in less than a day. Once completed, your vehicle alignment will be factory safe and ready.

Warning Lights

By bringing your vehicle to us, we can connect to your ECU and see what’s causing the warning light to come on.

If the problem is a little more involved, we can give you a detailed breakdown of what’s causing the light to come on. Since we are invested in what repairs and services are performed on your vehicle, you can rest comfortably knowing that you are getting the best service possible every time.

Got a complex issue with your car? Bring it in to us and let us figure out what’s going on under the hood. If it’s a simple reset, we’ll get you in and out fast. If it’s something more complex, we’ll give you a complete breakdown so you can get it fixed.
