Monster Automotive’s well-trained diagnostic team provides computer and physical engine diagnostics for various vehicle brands, including VW, Audi, Toyota, BMW, Ford, Mercedes, Jeep, Dodge and more.
Engine diagnostics can identify issues within a car’s engine, transmission, brakes, exhaust system, and other significant components. It could also reveal performance issues with the ignition coils, fuel injector, airflow and coolant, and throttle
Today, most cars have an onboard computer that can interface with the vehicle’s electronic diagnostic equipment and identify specific problems.
How engine diagnostic tests work
With the advances in technology in the automotive industry, a vehicle’s internal computer records, monitors, and operates several components within the car. When something isn’t working as expected, a Monster Automotive technician will use an advanced computer-type tool to connect to the vehicle’s internal computer to read any codes stored. He will then download information to help determine what component needs attention.
When it comes to engine diagnostics, the car’s computer monitors the engine, transmission, exhaust systems, brakes, and cooling system. An engine diagnostic can be instrumental in isolating vehicle troubles through codes that inform the technician on which area of the vehicle needs attention or which component performs outside the acceptable range for operation. However, it does not provide details on the cause of the failure. That’s when the knowledge and expertise of a Monster Automotive technician come in to diagnose and repair the problem thoroughly.
A few factors contribute to how long an engine diagnostic test takes. A standard engine diagnostic test can take about an hour to an hour and a half. But, of course, more severe issues that need further investigation can take significantly longer.
