Importance of Getting a Complete Car Diagnostic Test

At Caliber, our purpose is Restoring the Rhythm of Your Life® and that means helping you reduce any interruptions by caring for your vehicle. The first step to preventative car care comes from scheduling a car diagnostic test. It can help detect issues before they turn into expensive repairs or worse, your car breaks down out on the road. If your check engine light comes on, or your car doesn’t sound or “feel” right, you should immediately check in with a professional technician who can perform a diagnostic test and let you know what is going on. Our teammates at Caliber Auto Care will get your car running normally again.

What is a car diagnostic test?

When your dashboard lights start appearing, it's time to find expert mechanical help. At Caliber Auto Care, we perform a car diagnostic test which utilizes specialized equipment to scan your vehicle's engine, transmission and more. We'll analyze the results and quickly and accurately pinpoint problem areas in your car. 

What areas of a car can be tested?

Diagnostic tests can help locate problems within your car’s engine, transmission, exhaust system, brakes, and all other major components. It's important to see a professional to get an accurate diagnosis.

The knowledge and expertise of our technicians are critical to resolving issues. We use diagnostic tool codes to determine the area where the problem is located, not the exact underlying issue.

Once our technicians pinpoint what part of your car needs attention, they will take a closer look at the affected area. The car diagnostic scan helps find the problem and our techs fix it.

How often should you get a diagnostic test?

For preventative maintenance, many technicians recommend taking your car in for a diagnostic test at least once a year. Some issues fly under the radar but can still cause damage. But, if your check engine light comes on, schedule a diagnostic test right away.
