The Hartzel Automotive & Marine Guide To Vehicle Diagnosis

Posted on November 03,15 by napademo

Why is my check engine light on?

Modern Thorold vehicles have several computers on board that control all kinds of things like engine functions, transmission shifts, traction control, anti-lock brakes, stability control, emissions – and on some vehicles, even steering, braking and the throttle.

Think about that for a minute – things that used to be controlled by simple mechanical connections now have electronic controls that rely on computers, software and sensors. It’s no wonder that when something goes wrong with their pickup it can be pretty complicated for Thorold motorists to track down the source of the problem.

To help your Hartzel Automotive & Marine service specialist figure out what’s wrong, your pickup is equipped with on-board diagnostics. The Check Engine Light comes on to tell you there’s a problem and the engine management computer stores a trouble code. Your knowledgeable Hartzel Automotive & Marine service advisor connects a scan tool to your vehicle’s diagnostic port and retrieves the trouble codes as well as other important data.

Trouble codes are like clues for the Thorold technician to follow as he diagnoses what’s wrong with your pickup. In a way, it’s like going to your Thorold doctor with a problem. She’ll run some additional tests and gather the information she needs to make a diagnosis and form a treatment plan. How much a vehicle diagnosis costs at Hartzel Automotive & Marine in Thorold depends on how much time it takes to sort out the symptoms and find the underlying problem.
