There is no one who knows your vehicle better than you do. So when we say that you – and only you – knows when something is off with your vehicle, you understand what we mean. Maybe the engine is idling a little rougher than it normally does. Maybe you’ve noticed a strange smell. Or worst of all, maybe your check engine light has come on. Even if you don’t know what the problem is exactly, the expert pros at Meadows Automotive can use computer diagnostics to pinpoint the problem fast. If something doesn’t feel right, bring it to Meadows Automotive and let us take a look before a small problem becomes a big one.

Diagnostics Near Me

So what are they checking for when you bring in your vehicle for a diagnostic test? The pros at Meadows Automotive run a computer scan on your car, producing a report containing various computer diagnostic codes. The data reported allows our technicians to quickly and easily pinpoint the problems with your vehicle, and repairs can be discussed once the issue is apparent. Even if your car is running fine, regular diagnostic checks are recommended by your car’s manufacturer as part of a preventative maintenance schedule. Check your vehicle’s owner’s manual for more information on this schedule.

Check Engine Light

Uh-oh. You know the feeling – the check engine light pops on and your stomach sinks. You don’t know what’s wrong, you don’t know how to fix it and you are sure that whatever is wrong, it is going to be expensive. The frustrating part of this dashboard warning is that it can mean so many different things have gone awry. It could be an engine problem, an exhaust problem, or any number of other issues. In this situation, the worst thing you can do in this situation, though, is to ignore the problems. Check engine issues tend to become exponentially worse over time, especially if ignored, so at the first sign of the check engine light, bring it into Meadows Automotive.
