Just like our yearly medical check-up, our cars need a periodic inspection to make sure that every component is working fine. This is called a vehicle diagnostics. Every major car manufacturer recommends that you should bring your car for a diagnostics at least once every year.
Inspecting a vehicle used to be a lengthy process. A mechanic had to check all the components to detect the problem manually. However, with the advent of modern cars, the whole process became digital and easy to use. Most modern cars have an ECU or Engine Control Unit. This is a computer that controls everything from the fuel flow to the AC temperature. It also logs any error with any of your car’s system.
If you bring your car to Central Point MOT Centre for engine diagnostic, our technicians will plug a reader into the computer, and check if there is any fault code. If there is one, we will assess its origin, and inform you about the same.
How do you know if there is a malfunction?
With modern cars, detecting an issue with the system became a lot easier. A fault in any of the components is recognised by its accompanying sensor and sent to the ECU to keep a record. The ECU, in turn, alerts the car owner by triggering a warning light in the dash.
If you see the ‘check engine’ or ‘ABS warning’ light flashing on your car’s dash, you should immediately bring it to us for an engine diagnostics in Coventry. Driving with faulty parts can cause a catastrophic accident on the road, and you should avoid it by any means necessary.
We know that your car is a complex machine, full of things that can go wrong at any moment. So, we have designed our service packages in such a way that it includes a comprehensive test to make sure all the critical (and other) components are fine.
