We can fine-tune your car

Normally your Engine Management Light (Also known as the “EML”) would appear in your dash display to alert you to a problem before more serious damage occurs.

Conducting a vehicle diagnostic can expose a number of problems connected with; the engine, oil viscosity, ignition system fuel tank, exhaust system and other vital components of your vehicle. Modern vehicles are all designed with computer processors, microchips and sensors that can be linked to a car’s computer system (often described as the car’s brain or ECU) which will scan to locate where the problem exists.

The car diagnostic can tell you some very important facts about the vehicle, for example: ignition timing issues, level of carbon build-up in the engine, fuel injector performance, whether the ignition has a misfire, engine rpm levels, air and coolant temperature, crankshaft and camshaft position and the throttle opening. After the car diagnostic is performed, the computer will tag each data point to reveal what needs to be corrected and stores this code so that the mechanic can look in a specific area for the problem.

Here at LM Autos in Dunston Gateshead we use state of the art Snap-on diagnostic equipment for vehicle diagnostics which can read the engine fault codes in your ECU’s memory. Please feel free to email or call a member of the team for further advice or assistance.

Diagnostic checks £30 (If we carry out the repair then the initial cost will be incorporated into the repair cost so effectively you get it for FREE)
