Digital Diagnostics

DiagnosticsDigital diagnostics testing might sound like something from the future, but it’s a technology that’s been in place for quite a while now. HRS AutoCare uses diagnostic testing to help narrow down what’s causing problems in your car so that we can get it fixed as quickly as possible.

What Is a Diagnostics Test for Your Car?

Digital diagnostics testing for your car involves connecting your car’s onboard computer with a device that can “talk” to the onboard computer. If there are error codes, the technician is able to look at those error codes and correlate that with a specific issue. Sometimes there are things wrong with your car or your car’s engine that don’t cause the check engine or other dashboard warning lights to come on. The computer hangs onto those, and they can be handled when your mechanic runs a test.

Six Types of Problems Car Diagnostics Find

You might be surprised just what types of issues can be found through a diagnostics test of your car. The other surprise is that the test might not reveal exactly what’s wrong. It might only give an indication of where the trouble is. Here are just a few of the types of problems that diagnostic testing can help to decode:

  • Engine issues
  • Transmission trouble
  • Brake issues
  • Fuel system problems
  • Air flow issues
  • Exhaust system failures

These are just a start. There are many other problems that might cause an error code, but that your mechanic has to troubleshoot to completely diagnose.

An experienced repair technician has the skills to do this, but there can be barriers in the way or multiple issues and that can cost you and your mechanic time, which can also cost you money.
