Diagnostic Services

It's easy to be misled about computer diagnostic services. Because vehicle manufacturers continue to bring more and more of your vehicles systems under digital control, the role of computer diagnostics has grown. We put these systems to work in a way that blends what we think is valuable information along with the talent, experience, knowledge and wisdom of our certified mechanics. We won't replace something just because the computer might indicate that it needs to be replaced. We always investigate further to verify that the information we're receiving from the computer is accurate. Computer Diagnostic Service is more of a compass that we use to point us in the right direction. For example: Recently a situation arose when the computer recommended the replacement of an oxygen sensor because it didn't detect a signal. Most technicians would have replaced the sensor for the customer, but after further investigation we discovered that the wiring in the harness was frayed due to rodent damage. We repaired the wiring and the customer was happy to have the problem resolved at a substantially lower cost.

Mechanics at The Garage are able to diagnose all the electronic parts in your car. For expert diagnostics services on your car's electronic devices, visit The Garage today.

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At The Garage, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 505-352-5152 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Computer
Today, car manufacturers include at least one computer in motor vehicles. This computer's main function is to monitor and adjust engine and transmission operations. The computer receives input information from different sensors. The computer controls spark plugs, idle speed, and fuel injectors so as to get you the best possible car performance. Failure of the car computer will greatly affect the things it controls. To get the most out of your car's computer, have it evaluated regularly for updates and proper operation. If it is already failing, have it repaired or replaced. To have your car's computer handled by experts, visit The Garage in Albuquerque, NM 87120 today.

Computer Reflashing
The Garage has state-of-the-art equipment to provide computer reflashing to our customers in the Albuquerque area. The primary reason to reflash a computer (which basically means updating or reinstalling its software) is that an update has been issued by the manufacturer. It's a very simple procedure, and there may be minor updates that the car hasn't had. The manufacturer may have tweaked the transmission-shifting algorithm or some other parameters that are not crucial but may bring slight improvements to drivability, mileage or emissions. Since auto manufacturers are coming out with automobile updates every day, there may be a reprogram available for your vehicle. Stop by The Garage or call us at 505-352-5152 to schedule an appointment!

Drivability
Drivability is the degree of smoothness and steadiness of your car's acceleration. Most modern cars are fitted with on-board computers that continuously check the readings from various sensors. In case of drivability problems, you will receive a warning message on your car's dashboard. To have your car diagnosed for drivability issues, visit The Garage in Albuquerque, NM 87120 today. At The Garage, we have the necessary tools, training, and technology to diagnose and address your car's drivability issues.

Engine Controls
Basically, an engine control system is an on-board computer in your car. Like all computers, the engine controls are composed of hardware and software. Automotive engine control systems are responsible for regulating exhaust emissions, and providing increased fuel economy. To get the best out of your car's incredibly powerful technology, make sure engine controls are working properly. To check if your car's engine controls are working properly, call The Garage today.



Auto Diagnostic FAQs



How do vehicle diagnostic systems work?

OBD stands for On-Board Diagnostics and is a sophisticated computer that collects vital information from a network of sensors, monitoring engine performance, emissions, and other key functions. It not only regulates various car systems but also acts as a diagnostic tool, alerting you to potential problems before they become major issues.

How long does a car diagnostic last?

While a basic diagnostic test typically wraps up in 1-1.5 hours, complex issues demanding further examination and component access/testing can extend the process to 2-3 hours. The length ultimately depends on the severity of the problem and the potential presence of multiple underlying culprits.

What is included in a car diagnostic test?

Diagnostic tests are like X-rays for your vehicle, utilizing specialized equipment to scan its complex systems and components like the engine, transmission, and throttle. From minor oil tank issues to intricate electrical glitches, these tests diagnose a wide range of potential problems. However, interpreting the data they generate requires trained professionals, making dealer shops and skilled mechanics your best bet for accurate diagnoses.

Glad to know that I found a mechanic shop that I can trust! I took my 2011 Ram 1500 in for some electronic issues and William at The Garage took my vehicle in and got it diagnosed within a reasonable time and my truck is now back to normal again. Thank you William and The Garage for helping me get back on the road again!
