Computerized diagnostic services

If your car is not running properly, won’t start or has a ‘check engine’ light on, you will need some diagnostics. This procedure first communicates with your car’s computer to find out what the computer thinks is wrong. We then verify component failure to make sure the computer is not simply confused. After determining the cause of your problem, we will recommend the necessary repairs.


A typical car inspection would start by walking around the bodywork checking for signs of damage past and present. This includes the gaps between panels. The bonnet would be lifted and the internal bodywork checked for damage past and present then the boot would be opened and checked for damage past and present. The engine would be started and examined for excessive smoke, blowback, unusual noises and signs of overheating. The car would be test driven to see if power is appropriate to the manufacturers horsepower.

The engine would also be tested to see if it was smooth running through the revolution range and that it would reach full revolutions. As the engine was being tested the gearbox would be checked for smooth operation, noises and syncromesh wear (common problem). The clutch would be tested for smooth pick up and delivery of power (very common problem). The drive shafts, steering, brakes would be tested for correct operation. The warning lights would be checked to ensure they are present and working correctly. The brake pedal rubber, gearstick, steering wheel, seat belts, are checked for wear. The seats and carpets are looked over for rips, burns and stains.

We can test the correct mileage of your car if you have bought a second-hand one.
