The automotive industry has evolved in style, engineering, and technology throughout the years and the auto repair industry has evolved right alongside it. Today’s vehicles are equipped with advanced technology called on-board diagnostics, or OBD, that actually scan your vehicle’s system and alert you when there is an issue. LP & Sons Auto Care is equipped with the latest scan tools that allow us to properly diagnose whatever issue your vehicle is having.
Check Engine Light DeLand
One of the ways that your OBD lets you know there is an issue within your vehicle’s system is with the check engine light. We all know that little light on our dashboard and just how tempting it is to ignore it when it comes on. At LP & Sons Auto Care, we never want you to ignore it. Instead come by our shop and let us do a scan and perform an inspection to see what the issue is.
There are multiple things both minor and major that will cause your check engine light to come on. In some cases, it is as simple as tightening your gas cap, but in many cases, it is a potentially major problem in your engine or transmission.
Computer Diagnostics DeLand
While an OBD scan or computer diagnostics allows us to see where the problem is, it is actually just the first step in the total diagnostic process. Computer diagnostics make auto repair far more efficient than it once was by acting as a road map to point us in the direction of the problem. Once we know where the issue is, it is up to our expert mechanics to thoroughly inspect the system or component and diagnose the problem. Once your vehicle is diagnosed we are able to perform an accurate and reliable repair to get you safely back on the road.
We often hear the question, “Can’t I just get a scan at the auto parts store?” The truth is, yes you can. However, without the expertise of a mechanic like LP & Sons Auto Care, all you will have is a code or series of codes. It takes an experienced and knowledgeable technician to not only decode the results but to then take a deeper dive and truly diagnose the problem.
Whether your check engine light is on or your vehicle is performing differently than it used to, LP & Sons Auto Care is happy to perform computer diagnostics on your vehicle. Call us today to schedule an appointment or come by our shop today.
