Car Diagnostics

Computers are dotted all around newer cars, and when there is a problem, it takes a highly skilled mechanic to find the root cause of the problem. Nowadays, it is much harder for a person to work on their own vehicle due to the number of electronics.

From what should make things easier, can make it harder, and even skilled mobile mechanics in Orlando can be led to the wrong area when a symptom is caused by something else. Computers and warning lights show the main problem, and depending on the part of the engine, there could be up to five things that lead to the warning light being displayed.

Our fleet of mobile mechanics has the very best diagnostics equipment on their vehicles that enable them to run a car diagnostic test at any location where a customer says they want the work to be carried out. Because we are a 24/7 365 mobile mechanic service, our team is ready as soon as we receive a call.

Symptoms and Reasons for Engine Management Lights

  • Poor performance and an increase in gasoline consumption
  • Engine vacuum leaks – this produces fuel or ignition problem symptoms. The air to fuel ratio becomes out of balance, and the engine can run inefficiently
  • Catalytic converter problems
  • Spark plug cables, or ignition coil problems – a mechanic needs to trace the problem
  • Spark plugs or rotor faults – each failure can cause the same error
  • EGR valve problems – the function of this is to help reduce polluting emissions

If you think you are showing signs of these symptoms, or you have a warning light saying there is an engine problem, you should call us immediately.

Some errors cause a warning light to stay on or flash intermittently. If the light lights up and stays on, it is to signal an impending problem. This does need a skilled mobile mechanic to run a full diagnostic test to eliminate the problem and to cancel the light.

If you see the light come on as you start the engine, this is okay because it is the vehicle running its internal checks.

Orlando FL Vehicle Diagnostics

Mobile Mechanic of Orlando has operated for over 15 years and built up a loyal following of customers. We always show our integrity and honesty towards our customers, and even if we offer the most affordable rates for running vehicle diagnostic tests. Our mechanics never cut corners, and all test results are shown and explained what they mean.

When we do this, the customer is a part of the process, and no work is undertaken until our mechanic has been given the go-ahead. Depending on the fault, we have access to some of the very best OEM parts in Orlando that will be used to replace the faulty engine part.

Here is a quick rundown of what our skilled diagnostic technicians would include in their test:

  • Detailed visual inspections of all related engine components to look for any apparent problems.
  • A fully detailed system analysis is taken from computer-related printouts or display output.
  • Further Pin-Point testing is carried out to eliminate these problems.
  • Full component diagnosis at every stage of the process.

When the test has finished, and the results are shown, the mechanic would then explain where the possible fault lies. Once the problem has been fixed, they would then re-set the dash warning light and make sure all the problem areas have been fixed.

Mobile Mechanic in Orlando Car Diagnostics Checks

Older vehicles don’t suffer from the same types of problems because they don’t have as many computer controlled parts in the engine. Still, there is a lot that can be shown by running a diagnostics test. Emissions and fuel economy can be found out, and then an engine tune might be advised.

These tests can also show areas that might not be operating like they should, or parts are starting to wear. These signs are areas that will worsen over time, and more substantial work will be required.

Once all the car diagnostic tests are complete, and everything has been reset, a customer can either schedule a vehicle service or engine tune via our skilled mechanic, or they can call our friendly 24/7 support staff and make a booking directly to the office.
