Finding faults with your vehicle

Book your car diagnostic test with your local garage, One Stop Autos Cheshire, for the best accuracy and efficiency levels in Macclesfield. Modern cars are equipped with a computer system that checks the engine, brakes and most mechanical parts of the car, It constantly updates information received from sensors in the engine. It then makes adjustments to keep your vehicle running smoothly. If a fault occurs which the computer cannot fix by itself, it may trigger an engine management light on your dashboard. As a result, this will generate a fault code which is stored in your vehicle’s diagnostics system. Therefore, it is easier to find the cause of the problem.

The latest equipment

At One Stop Autos, our technicians use the latest state of the art diagnostic systems to scan your car’s computer and identify the problem from the fault code. Our systems are capable of reading hundreds of potential error codes on any make or model of van or car. Unlike many garages, who only carry diagnostics for the manufacturer who they deal with, as an independent garage in Macclesfield, we can diagnose faults in a huge range of makes and models, in fact around 90% of cars.

Car diagnostic test at One Stop Autos

During your car diagnostic test, our technicians insert a scanner into your vehicle computer’s connector, usually located under the dashboard or behind the glove box. We then input your vehicle’s information such as make and model, vehicle identification number (VIN), and engine type into the scanner. The scanner can then identify the fault code. This fault code then tells our technicians know where to look to find the problem. The whole process avoids the need for a full engine check and speeds up the diagnostic process. Therefore, allowing us to fix your car quicker.

What does a car diagnostic test tell you?

Car diagnostics can relay a huge amount of information about how the vehicle is or has been performing. For example, ignition timing issues, fuel injector performance, whether the ignition coils are firing, engine RPM levels, air and coolant temperature, crankshaft and camshaft position, air bags and the throttle opening. Each data point is logged by the computer to reveal what needs to be corrected. Diagnostic checks can help our technicians to understand the full extent and cause of the problem. Therefore, we can readily advise you as to what repairs may be needed and get your vehicle back up and running as quickly as possible.
