When your check engine light comes on it could be due to a wide variety of reasons. Sometimes more than one. The first thing to remember is not to panic. The second thing to remember is to come to Demore’s Automotive for a diagnostic test.
What Is A Diagnostic Test?
As vehicle technology has become more advanced so has auto repair technology. Modern car’s rely heavily on their computer systems. A diagnostic test simply connects with your vehicle’s components to pinpoint the area that is having an issue.
Does A Diagnostic Check Tell You Exactly What’s Wrong?
In short, no. A diagnostic check tells your mechanic where the problem is, but it doesn’t necessarily specify exactly what the issue is. That’s is where the Demore’s Automotive team comes in. By being able to pinpoint the location of the problem, our mechanics know where to start checking, but it is their expertise that diagnoses the problem and advises you on the repairs needed.

Our diagnostics tool saves you time and money in the auto repair process. By being able to pinpoint the location of your vehicle’s issues, we know exactly where to start. That saves us time, getting you back on the road sooner and saving you money on labor costs.
What Components Are Tested?
The main components that are tested during a diagnostic check are your vehicle’s engine, exhaust system, brakes, and transmission. But it also checks for fuel injector performance issues and tests your throttle, ignition coils, and problems with airflow and coolant.
When Should I Get My Vehicle Tested?
When it comes to diagnostics, you don’t have to wait until your check engine light comes on. It is always a good idea to have your car inspected and tested anytime you hear or feel something that feels a little off. At Demore’s Automotive we recommend getting a diagnostic test at least once a year. Doing so will help you catch minor issues you didn’t even notice before they turn into costly problems.
