Advanced Diagnostics for European Autos

During our advanced diagnostics process for European autos, we meticulously examine numerous vehicle components to ensure they're functioning optimally. Key areas that our team assesses include:

  • Engine performance
  • Transmission system
  • Braking system
  • Suspension and steering components
  • Electrical systems
  • Exhaust system
  • …and more

Signs of Reduced Auto Engine Performance

The engine is the heart of your vehicle. When it becomes damaged or worn, you will begin to notice issues with your car's performance.

Pay attention to these indicators that your engine may be experiencing issues:

  • Reduced fuel efficiency or miles per gallon
  • Lack of power or acceleration when pressing the gas
  • Rough idling or engine shaking/vibration
  • Engine stalling or trouble starting
  • Check engine light illuminated on the dashboard
  • Unusual engine noises like knocking or pinging

What To Do When Your Check Engine Light Comes On

If the check engine light appears on your vehicle's dashboard, don't panic, but don't ignore it either. This warning light indicates that the onboard diagnostic system has detected an issue that needs attention, whether it's a loose gas cap or a more serious problem.

The best course of action is to have the trouble codes read and diagnosed by one of our qualified technicians as soon as possible to identify and resolve the underlying issue before it potentially causes further damage. If the light is accompanied by the vehicle shaking or jerking, don't waste any time bringing it into our shop so we can assess the engine as soon as possible.

When Should Transmission Service Be Considered

Don't overlook the importance of transmission repairs because unrepaired issues can lead to bigger problems. Most auto manufacturers recommend transmission fluid and filter changes every 30,000-60,000 miles. Neglecting this service can allow contaminants and wear debris to accumulate, leading to premature transmission failure.

Some signs it may be time for a transmission service include:

  • Difficulty shifting gears or delayed engagement
  • Slipping out of gear or erratic shifting behavior
  • Grinding or shaking when putting the vehicle in gear
  • Leaking transmission fluid under the vehicle
  • Humming, whining, or clunking noises from the transmission

Reasons Your Car Breaks Are Squeaking

When car breaks are squeaking, it's a telltale sign that they need to be looked at and inspected for damage. No matter the make and model of your car, you can expect that brakes will wear and issues will eventually present themselves.

Here are the most common reasons for them:

  • Worn brake pads that need replacement
  • Glazed brake pads from overheating
  • Brake pad hardware or caliper issues
  • Debris or damage to the brake rotors
  • Low brake fluid level

Squealing or grinding brake noises are your car's way of alerting you to potential brake problems. Having the brakes inspected promptly can prevent more expensive rotor or caliper repairs.

How Long Do Car Repairs Take?

While some jobs like brake pad replacements may only take a few hours, larger repairs like transmission overhauls could take a few days.

The time required for auto repairs can vary significantly based on:

  • Complexity and scope of the repair job
  • Availability of any needed parts
  • Age, make, and model of the vehicle
  • Shop workload and number of vehicles ahead
  • Whether additional issues are discovered during the repair

The best way to gauge how long repair services will take is to request a turnaround time from our team. We'll also always update you if we encounter issues along the way that will increase the service time.
