The automotive industry has changed drastically with diagnostics. You probably remember that old carbureted Mercedes or VW that just needed to be adjusted and ‘tuned up’. Nowadays modern vehicles demand computer savvy technicians to perform a proper diagnosis. Anyone can go down to Napa Auto Parts or O’Riley Auto Parts and purchase a code reader for $50, plug it in and read a code that says P0172 System Too Rich. But it takes a technician with trained skill from Jackalope Automotive to understand how the system is being affected and what is causing it to run rich.
A code scanner will never replace the technical knowledge of an ASE certified technician.
We use commercial quality vehicle scanners that are much more advanced than those at your local auto-part store. Our technicians know how to read the results, identify the multiple areas that can set off that particular code, and accurately diagnose your vehicle’s problem.
The same is true for knock sensor fault or p0171, or a p0128 coolant temperature sensor fault. These are just a few of hundreds of faults that can be misleading if not properly diagnosed.
