Engine Diagnostics

What Is Engine Diagnostics and How Does It Work?

As the name indicates, engine diagnostics is a method of ‘diagnosing’ an issue with your motor. This is done by plugging the testing machine into the ECU (engine control unit), an onboard computer that connects to various sensors throughout your vehicle. If any faults are present, they will often present as a code that will lead our mechanics to the problem area. Most makes and models of cars and vans are fitted with ECUs, however, classic cars particularly those pre-1975 may not be. Not to worry, we are qualified and experienced in finding problems the good old fashioned way too!
