Vehicle computer diagnosis combines test results with expert knowledge to help “cure” what ails your automobile
If you see a “check engine” or a “service engine soon” light in your instrument cluster; your car has stored a diagnostic trouble code. This means the computer system on your vehicle has detected a problem with the various systems it controls. Your car has many different sensors that monitor the various vehicle systems. If the trouble code light has been illuminated your vehicle enters into “limp mode” this means it is running on a predetermined program that causes poor mileage and increased emissions. An engine trouble code reader is an easy to use tool.
All 1996 and newer vehicles utilize a “D” style plug-in connector that connects to the code reader. On most vehicles the connector is located at the driver’s compartment. Once the code reader is plugged in we can retrieve trouble codes the engine computer has stored in its memory.
Correct computer system function is essential for your car’s engine to operate properly. Many engine run-ability problems can be related to a weak or failing sensor producing a diagnostic trouble code. Problems can range from hard cold engine starting, low power and stalling while driving. We can advise you a proper course of action to avoid more serious repairs. It only takes 10-15 minutes in most cases. Give Superior Automotive Service a call at (541)-779-2806 today. We offer full diagnostics – which includes electrical and mechanical.
