A diagnostic test helps to identify the reason for any possible mechanical issue that has illuminated the check engine light. At In Town Automotive, we use a modern diagnostic check to figure out the problem.

While we also provide free visual checks, having a diagnostic check on your vehicle is a guaranteed way to figure out the source of the problem.

Failure to diagnose the issue will not only take up your time but may also be a lot more expensive. Because of this, we highly recommend taking a vehicle engine diagnostic test, as they’re affordable and can be very beneficial.

After we identify the result from the diagnostic test, we can provide you with the repairs you’ll need to get your vehicle fixed. This also ensures that your vehicle doesn’t face any additional damage that could lead to a costly repair down the line.

You can book your appointment for an auto diagnostic at our garage in Northampton online now!

Our diagnostic checks explore your vehicle’s most important components. Firstly, they figure out any issues you may have with your car or van's engine. Then, they check out the condition of your exhaust, brakes, and other crucial parts of your vehicle.

On top of that, we can take a look at the factors that affect your vehicle’s performance, like the throttle and fuel injectors. It should be noted that while the diagnostic checker can find faulty parts, it may not explain the root cause of the check engine light.

Therefore, you need to leave this check in the hands of reliable technicians from In Town Automotive. They have years of experience and, with the analysis made by the diagnostic check, they can properly diagnose the issue.

While it’s common practice to only get a diagnostic test after seeing the check engine light, you shouldn’t avoid it. Instead, it’s recommended to get a car diagnostic test at least once a year, to discover any hidden problems that can’t be seen or heard before they become bigger issues.

However, if any warning indicators light up on the dashboard or if you hear any strange noises coming from your vehicle, you should do a diagnostic test immediately. This prevents any major problems from taking place in your car, making sure that you can ride safely without worrying.

For a thorough diagnostic check, we recommend an experienced garage like In Town Automotive. We guarantee accurate information and only suggest repairs that you need.

At In Town Automotive, we are an award-winning garage filled with experienced technicians that have diagnosing vehicles for many years. Additionally, we use modern diagnostic checkers that conduct in-depth scans to identify any potential problems with the components of your vehicle.

These car diagnostic tools help us to quickly and accurately identify the source of the problem in your vehicle.

If we find any issues with your vehicle, we’ll provide you with fixes to ensure that you can get back on the road in no time!
