Cathedral City Automotive Diagnostics

Most car owners know how to tinker with their own cars. They can do basic troubleshooting and a little bit of repair. But there are always cases where they would need extra help, because they don’t know how to take their car apart piece by piece in order to inspect every single part. Automotive diagnostic tools can help in this case.

There are people who dislike automotive diagnostic tools because they think the computer is doing all the work, while the technician is just following along. This is a misunderstanding. While it’s true that car diagnostics can tell that something is wrong, it is still the technician who will interpret its findings and must determine the root cause. And of course, it is the technician that must apply his experience and skill when it comes to actually doing the repairs. Davies Auto Care employs ASE certified equipment that have all the skills and experience needed to make efficient and accurate diagnosis of your vehicle problems.

One of the most important parts of your engine diagnostics system is the Electronic Control Unit or ECU. It’s basically an onboard computer that monitors the performance of different processes involved in keeping your car running. This includes the engine’s fuel injection, the RPM, and many more. The ECU is constantly making small adjustments on the fly to these processes, to ensure that they are working within spec. If there’s a problem that the ECU can’t address, the check engine light comes on along with an error code. You need a technician to interpret these error codes.

Another important part of the car diagnosis system is the sensors. Every car with an ECU also comes with various sensors, which track different parts of the vehicle, so that the ECU can received feedback on their performance. It is crucial that these sensors also get maintained, because if the sensors go bad, they won’t be able to report any issues back to the ECU. The result is that car owners will not know if something is wrong with their car until it is too late. Fortunately, replacing sensors is usually not as expensive compared to the major repairs that they normally keep track of.
