Should I Book a Diagnostic Test for My Car?

We often wait until the worst happens before addressing any problems with our cars but treating them similarly to ourselves can help prevent problems before they become expensive. Here at FSC Service Centre in Enfield, we offer a comprehensive diagnostic check which acts like a visit to your local GP. But is it worth it?

What is a Diagnostic Test?

A diagnostic test is an electronic plug in which communicates with a car’s microchips and sensors to find any system problems or faults your car might have developed.

How can a Diagnostic Test benefit me?

Because the purpose of a diagnostic test is to find any potential problems with your car, it can save you money in the long run, especially if the fault could have led to a breakdown or affected other components of the car.

What does a Diagnostic Test cover?

A diagnostic test can reveal problems within most of your car’s major components including the engine, transmission, brakes and exhaust system. It can also highlight problems with the fuel injection system, airflow, coolant, throttle and ignition coils. However, a diagnostic check cannot tell you exactly what is wrong with your car, only what isn’t working. This is where our expert mechanics come in handy as they will use all their experience and knowledge to interpret the results of the diagnostic check and assess what the problem is.

How much does it cost?

Here at FSC Service Centre in Enfield, we offer a comprehensive diagnostic check using state of the art equipment for only £60. This gives value for money if you suspect something is wrong with your car, but it doesn’t need a full or major service.

A diagnostic check can be of great benefit to your car, just as a visit to the GP can help you when you’re feeling under the weather. Therefore, if you suspect something is wrong with your car, book your diagnostic check online today using our booking tool. It’s quick, easy and FREE to do.
