Even when we go into the doctor for a medical problem, we’re paying him/her to diagnose our ailment and of course for the tests that go along with it. So receiving a diagnostic charge for a tricky automotive problem shouldn’t be a surprise.
Automotive diagnostics can cover quite a range. If you hear a noise in your brakes, a quick visual check is usually enough to know what needs to be done. If you’re having an intermittent problem with your engine, diagnosis may be much more involved.
Some think that when the check engine light comes on, the engine computer tells the technician exactly what the problem is. The reality is much different. The trouble code just tells your technician what engine parameter is out of range, not what’s causing it. Your technician at Bryant Automotive needs to determine the underlying problem that’s causing the symptom.
As you can imagine, some automotive diagnoses are quick and easy. Others are more involved and difficult. Of course, we at Bryant Automotive want to figure out what’s wrong with your vehicle and get you back on the road as quickly as possible.
