Engine Diagnostic

While regular engine maintenance will help ensure that your engine always performs at peak conditions, there are also signs you can look for that indicate an engine repair is needed. The “check engine” or “service engine” light is a sign that your engine should be looked at by an expert sooner than later.

Most of the time, your vehicle’s On-Board Diagnostics System will detect an engine issue and store the corresponding fault code, to be assessed by a professional.

Slow-cranking, rough idling, stalling, knocking, or pinging while accelerating are all signs that you should seek engine diagnostics to determine the full extent of your engine problem.

A decrease or increase in mpg and detectable loss of power during acceleration are also signs of an impending engine diagnostic. Engine warning lights help alert drivers to minor issues before they become major repairs.

Having the correct equipment is an essential part of servicing modern cars. Cars are increasingly controlled by computers and our investment in top of the range computer diagnostics means we can fix your car quicker and pass the time saving onto you.

At South Dublin Automotive we have invested in several diagnostic technologies which allow us to discover a wide array of problems affecting your car.
