It’s hard to know what’s going on under the hood without a car diagnostic service. A diagnostic test can reveal problems that may be associated with the engine and transmission, oil and gas tanks, exhaust systems, and other operating systems. Because today's vehicles are designed with computer processors, microchips, and sensors, it really is necessary to have a car diagnostic service to detect internal problems.

So what is a car diagnostic service, you ask? A specialized computer is linked to your vehicle to scan the various operating systems. Various “fault” codes have been stored in your vehicle’s memory system during operation. Most mechanics have been trained to read these codes, enabling them to pinpoint the actual cause of a problem, including whether or not a simple tune up is needed. Small problems can be taken care of before they turn into major problems! You will actually be saving time and money because you don’t have to pay for repairs performed on a "trial-and-error" basis.

So how do you know when your car needs a tune up? As we discussed above, schedule a car diagnostic service. Especially if you feel your car isn’t performing like you think it should. Here are a few issues that you may start to notice if a tune up is needed:

  • Check engine light illuminates while driving.
  • Engine stalls when accelerating or braking.
  • Decreased fuel efficiency, having to fill up the tank more often.
  • Shifting problems, such as slipping gears or jerking when shifting.
  • Excessive vibration or shaking felt in the steering wheel or seat.
