Engine Diagnostics

What are diagnostics?

In the same way that a doctor would run tests on a patient to identify a medical problem and ensure that the right treatment can be given to rectify the problem, a mechanic can run diagnostics checks on a vehicle that is not performing correctly to identify any issues. Cars, like humans, are complex, and only by identifying the cause of the problem can the vehicle be repaired.

The main two areas for diagnostics are mechanical and electrical. Dependent on the model of the car and the nature of the problem, the diagnostic process may involve physically assessing the condition of the car, looking for a leak, smelling for oil or fumes, or feeling for broken parts. Or it may be a computer-based test. In these models of cars, the vehicle can be plugged into a computer unit at the Rayments Garage workshop in Great Shelford, Cambridge to identify the problem that has been recorded by the onboard computer.

As a result of carrying out diagnostics, drivers can find out what is the precise problem with their car. This means that instead of having their car in the garage for a long time, the problem can be resolved with the minimum cost possible. Rayments Garage can get you back on the road quickly, and we can fix problems which could cause more serious issues if left unfixed.
