What is a diagnostic inspection?
Whenever there is an issue with your vehicle, a mechanical understanding of the components is required to ascertain the cause.
From unusual sounds coming from the engine, to a knocking sound when you travel over bumps and pot holes, it isn't always clear why it is occurring.
Therefore it's time to call in a trained mechanic, who can monitor the problem first hand and pinpoint what needs to be done to rectify it.
What happens during a diagnostic inspection?
This very much depends on what the issue is, how frequently it occurs and also the location of the suspected problem.
Therefore, the list of what happens is extensive, however each mechanic will be able to go through the symptoms, evaluate the potential causes and reduce the likely culprit down enough to identify the culprit.
Once they have located the cause, if it is something that can be fixed there and then without the requirement of additional time and parts (and in most cases, this is the outcome), they will resolve it for you.
If the rectification requires parts and a return visit, the mechanic will provide you with a no obligation quite for the work and if you wish to proceed, they will arrange return visit with you.
