It’s a beautiful day. You’re driving around the town, enjoying the weather, having the time of your life and out of the blue the check engine light pops up. And you have no idea what’s wrong. We’ve all been in such a scenario..right? Well you you need not worry now. In this blog we will tell you everything you need to know about the check engine light and the engine diagnostic tests. 

Check engine light = something’s wrong. 

Get it this way, just like annual health check-up ensures that we are in the best of health, an engine diagnostic test ensures that your vehicle is in good health. It points out the problems with the vehicle so that the mechanic can take care of it.

The check engine light? It’s your car telling you that it’s time for a diagnostic test. 

The next time your Check engine light is on, bring your car to Bosch car service – Armstrong creek motors, where our certified technicians will go through your vehicles entire diagnostic data-stream and identify the real problems that is causing the warning light to blink. 

Apart from highly trained and experiences mechanics, we also have fully equipped workshops and state-of-the-art diagnostic systems which identifies issues before they become major problems or safety hazards and improve the performance of your car to save you both time and money.

What is a car diagnostic test? 

Out of the technological developments made in the field of automotive, one of the most beneficial advancement for both the consumers and technicians alike is the computerisation of a car’s components. Car diagnostic tools can quickly and specifically point out problematic areas in a car’s engine or elsewhere using specialised software.

What parts can be tested? 

Diagnostic tests can reveal issues within a car’s engine, transmission, exhaust system, brakes, and other major components, as well as performance issues with the fuel injector, air flow and coolant, ignition coils, and throttle.

How often should a car undergo a diagnostic test? 

Ideally a car should get diagnosed at least once a year to ensure that all the systems are working efficiently and that it is at its best performance. 

However, if you feel like something is wrong with your vehicle you shouldn’t even wait for the check engine light to pop up. Bring your vehicle in. Give us a call at (03) 42060208 or Book OnlineBook Online.
