We are specialists in diagnosing faults and regularly resolve faults that other companies cannot. We have the latest equipment and a wealth of experience in .

Some of the common faults we get asked to look at include:

  • poor running
  • misfires
  • complete non-start
  • all common warning lights.

We pride ourselves in having the right equipment, knowledge and experience to enable us to do this.

If a comes on, it is because it has detected a fault within the system, failure to address this quickly can lead to further, more costly repairs, as can incorrect diagnosis which often results in replacement of unnecessary parts and increased labour charge.
Accurate diagnosis cannot always be achieved by simply ‘plugging in a diagnostic computer’ this will only determine the approximate area of the fault. Further testing is in almost every case, required to pinpoint and accurately diagnose a fault, saving you money in the long run and getting your vehicle back on the road sooner.

Some of the diagnostic techniques and tests we regularly carry out include:

  • Fuel system analysis
  • Serial data, datalogging and fault codes
  • Oscilloscope testing and waveform analysis
  • Compression testing and cylinder leakage testing
  • Battery and charging system testing
