Car Inspection and Diagnostics

Modern vehicles run entirely on central computers and complex software programs with sophisticated sensors and car parts. In a diagnostic inspection, a vehicle's electrical and mechanical systems are evaluated by trained technicians to determine which problems or faults may require attention. Onboard computer diagnostic codes are read and interpreted by trained technicians generally using specialised diagnostic equipment and software.

Some inspections also require the technician to conduct a visual or physical examination and performance tests. This provides all the valuable information needed for a mechanic to diagnose the underlying cause so they can make the right decision on what needs fixing in a more efficient manner.

When a strange noise starts to originate from the bonnet while driving or the check engine light comes on, it’s not always possible to identify the root cause. This is where diagnostic inspections come to the rescue and in many cases are quite helpful in identifying potential repairs needed before they turn into more costly repairs!

Inspection and Diagnostics services we offer

Windows inspection

A window diagnostic inspection involves a mechanic examining the functional components and mechanism and controls of the windows. Any issues identified during the inspection will be assessed and suitable repairs will be recommended by the mechanic.

Warning Light inspection

Warning lights illuminating on the dashboard does not always point out to the exact issue - especially when it’s the check engine light. The warning light inspection usually involves connecting a diagnostic tool to the vehicle's computer system and then reading error codes and checking the live data. Once the issue is identified, the mechanic can recommend the necessary repair needed to resolve the warning light problem.

Diagnostic inspection

During a diagnostic inspection, a mechanic will check and monitor a vehicle's problem to pinpoint the necessary fixes. It requires mechanical expertise to identify the cause of issues like unusual engine sounds or knocking when driving over bumps. The mechanic provides a detailed report on the car's condition and required repairs.

Car Won't Start inspection

A car won’t start inspection is a comprehensive diagnostic carried out by a trained mechanic using specialised equipment to identify what is hampering the process of starting up the vehicle. This includes checking the battery, starter motor, alternator and ignition switch among other car parts that contribute to the process of starting a car.

Airbag inspection

In an airbag inspection, the condition and a visual inspection of the car’s airbag system such as wires and cracks, along with associated sensors will be checked thoroughly to ensure that it is working as it should, i.e. deployed in the event of an accident. If any issues are identified, the technician will advise on next steps to ensure the airbag system is fully functional.

Car Leaking inspection

In the event of leaking in or outside the car, a car leaking inspection will help identify the source of the leak. During the inspection, the mechanic will conduct a visual and diagnostic inspection of components such as hoses and fittings where fluid can leak such as engine oil or brake fluid.
