Is your check engine light on? Don’t panic. It could be illuminated for any reason from a loose gas cap to a complicated engine issue. The best thing for you to do is to bring your car to Uptown Imports so our team of diagnostic experts can take a closer look and accurately diagnose the issue.
Why Should I Get a Diagnostic Test?
The wonderful thing about getting a diagnostic test prior to your auto repair is that it not only saves your mechanic time, it also saves you money. While a diagnostic test doesn’t tell your technician exactly what is wrong, it does pinpoint the location of the problem. This allows our team of auto repair experts to hone in on the issue rather than testing components that are working just fine. That, in turn, saves you money in unnecessary labor costs.
When Should I Get Diagnostic Testing Done?
While you may think that you only need a diagnostic test when your check engine light comes on, it is a good idea to have it performed on a more regular basis. At Uptown Imports we recommend that you have a diagnostic check performed every year to 18 months. Getting a diagnostic check done before you notice a problem is a good way to save money in the long run by catching a minor issue before it becomes a major problem.
What Happens During A Diagnostic Test?
Today’s vehicles are all based on technology and that includes major components like engines, transmissions, cooling systems, and brakes. Diagnostic testing is a state of the art method to run a complete check of your vehicle and make sure that all major components are in working order.
When you come into Uptown Imports for a diagnostic test, we will simply plug our diagnostic computer in just below your dash and run a comprehensive check. If your vehicle is experiencing an issue, we are alerted with an error code that allows us to see exactly where the issue is. Once the diagnostic test has been run, our team is able to dive in and fix the issue before it becomes a major issue.
Whether your check engine light is on, you are sensing a problem, or it has been a while since your last diagnostic check, Uptown Imports is here to help. Call us today at 612-424-5722 to schedule your next vehicle service or repair appointment.
