What Exactly is a Car Diagnostic?

Car DiagnosticEngine Diagnostics is a carefully designed system consisting of a few important pieces, but the most important thing to be aware of is your ECU. All vehicles manufactured after the mid 90’s are equipped with an Electronic Control Unit. Your vehicle’s ECU is essentially an onboard computer that monitors the performance of an engine’s fuel injection, RPM’s and a multitude of other processes required to keep your car running. The ECU is constantly making small adjustments to the timing of these processes and keeping them in line. In the event of a problem the ECU cannot fix, the ECU will activate your “check engine light” and store a trouble code in its memory for collection by a technician.

Another integral portion of the car diagnosis system is the sensors. Every vehicle is equipped with multiple sensors that report an issue back to the computer should something be amiss. One thing that we pay attention to is the fact that if one of your sensors goes bad, it can register as a major issue requiring extensive repair; however, in cases like these simply replacing the sensor will deactivate your check engine light and resolve the issue quickly and cheaply.
