The Importance of Regular Vehicle Diagnostics

Regular vehicle diagnostics are essential for maintaining your car’s health. Just like regular health check-ups, diagnostic checks help prevent major issues before they occur. These checks are particularly crucial when a warning light appears on your dashboard. Ignoring these signs can lead to decreased fuel economy and major damage, costing you more in the long run.

How Vehicle Diagnostics Work

Vehicle diagnostics involves using advanced tools to communicate with your car’s computer systems. Modern vehicles come equipped with complex computer systems that monitor everything from engine transmission to the ignition system. When you bring your car in for a diagnostic check, our technicians use specialized tools to read OBD II codes. These codes provide insights into the health and performance of various vehicle systems.

Our diagnostic scans at Tom’s Tire Pros are thorough and can reveal a variety of issues that might not be immediately obvious to the driver. These include:

Engine Problems: The diagnostic scan can uncover issues with the engine, such as misfires, poor compression, or overheating.

Transmission Troubles: Transmission glitches, including difficulty in shifting gears or unusual noises, are often revealed in a scan.

Emission System Errors: We can detect problems related to emissions, which could affect your vehicle’s environmental footprint and performance.
