Electrical gremlins can haunt even the most well built automobiles. Troubleshooting electrical problems can be a daunting task even for the most experienced technician, but as long as the technician follows the flow chart, in the right order, the tech will slowly eliminate potential unneeded repairs and figures out what's really causing your car to malfunction.
OBD (On Board Diagnostics)
The automobiles of today are highly sophisticated, equipped with their own troubleshooting systems called On Board Diagnostics, or OBD. These systems take thousands of readings from your car's sensors, continuously compiling information about how everything's working. When something is awry, the system sends out a code telling technicians what's gone wrong, and often triggers the dreaded Check Engine light. Unfortunately, the language of OBD and OBD-II systems is a bunch of numbers. Let Auto Innovations use their latest test equipment to diagnose and repair your problem correctly.
Clutch replacement is time-consuming, involving removal of the transmission. While on a rear-wheel-drive vehicle this may be relatively easier, on a front-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive vehicles the task is more difficult. Because of this, it's good practice to inspect the clutch whenever the gearbox is removed from the vehicle. This can save time and money in the long run.
Regular maintenance and inspection of your brake pads is a very important safety measure. If you drive your vehicle with worn out brake components, braking distances increase, you risk having an accident and most importantly you put yourself, your family and others on the road at risk. Give Auto Innovations a call to have your brakes inspected at no charge.
The key to a good auto repair facility lies with the technicians knowledge in troubleshooting your problem. For example if your car won't start, there are a number of things that could be causing the problem. Proper troubleshooting will eliminate potential issues that aren't the real problem and point the technician in the right direction. There's no bigger waste of money than repairing or replacing an auto part only to find out it wasn't the problem.
Vehicle maintenance and routine inspections can go a long way when it comes to keeping your vehicle in peak condition. Following the manufacturer's car maintenance schedule will save you time and money. Auto Innovations uses oem replacement parts when available at a fraction of the cost from the dealerships.
