RW Motor Engineering can carry out regular diagnostic tests to detect problems with your vehicle before they require expensive repairs, or worse, leave you stranded on the side of the road after a breakdown. And while many people think diagnostic tests are only necessary when the check engine light comes on, there are many benefits to taking a proactive approach to car maintenance.
The computerisation of car components enables us to use specialised software and car diagnostic tools to quickly and accurately point to problem areas thanks to built-in processors, microchips and sensors. This can reveal problems within a car’s engine, transmission, exhaust system, brakes, and other major components, as well as performance issues with the fuel injectors, air flow and coolant, ignition coils, and throttle.
You don’t have to wait for the 'check engine' light to get a car diagnostic test. If you hear or feel something “off,” our technicians can use diagnostic testing to uncover the problem.
We recommend bringing your car in for a diagnostic check at least once a year, which will uncover minor problems that can’t be seen or heard (and that won’t trigger the 'check engine' light).
Diagnostic testing is also a useful tool when you’re checking out a used car. Both private sellers and professional car dealers should agree to a diagnostic test before you commit to buying, and if they don’t, that’s a sign you should walk away from the deal.
We have all the diagnostic tools needed for the newest vehicles, to the very old ones. We have a large collection of old tools and technology for older cars that the newer equipment would not work with. Combined with our experience on older and classic vehicles, we can look after these just as well as all modern vehicles.
