Our engine diagnostic services help us to provide you with an accurate diagnosis of your vehicle’s engine problem
Check Engine and Other Indicator Lights
These indicator lights correspond with a more complicated computer code which can tell a mechanic a lot more about what is happening to the vehicle than the light can.
At My Auto Center, we use VERUS Pro Diagnostic Tools by SnapOn to read engine codes. This complicated computer allows us to access your vehicle’s command modules, allowing us to turn the wipers on and off and work other internal systems remotely. It also allows us to make new digital keys and key fobs for the vehicle.
Looking up the diagnostic code is the tip of the diagnostic iceberg. It gives us a general direction to look for problems with your vehicle, but we have more sophisticated tools for understanding the full extent of the problem.
We use Lab Scopes to dial into your vehicle’s sensors to make sure they are working properly and levels are maintained appropriately. We also have a 5 Gas Analyzer we use to test emissions. It will also tell us if a liquid has ended up in a place where it isn’t supposed to be, such as a leak of coolant in your fuel line.
If there seems to be a problem with seals, we have an Artificial Smoke Machine we can use to see where particles are escaping so we can fix leaks. We also have a Dealer Level Scan Tool which allows us to update your car’s computer system. This is usually something only a dealership can accomplish, but since we have the tool, we can do anything a dealership can do, at least on domestic model vehicles.
Your vehicle’s engine could have any number of problems. At My Auto Center, it is our job to get to the bottom of what is keeping your vehicle from operating properly. We’ll have you back on the road in no time!
"I have been a customer of their's for 14 years. I started with their non-profit Carpenter's Garage then joined their membership program. Both programs are wonderful. I started out as a customer but now have a car repair family that I can count on and trust. I can always count on their help when the need arises."
"I have been using this shop for a year now, and the work is always done right. I use my car for my sole income, and when I found myself in a financial crisis with bad to no options, they worked with me to come up with a payment plan. There truly are good, honest people in this world, and I am most grateful."
