The Basics Behind Engine Diagnostics Services at Advanced Auto Care

Originally, the OBD System, or On-Board Diagnostics System, was designed to track vehicle emissions but it also detects engine problems. Both OBD I and OBD II systems exist, with OBD II systems being the norm in post-1996 vehicles. The OBD is linked to the Engine Control Unit (ECU), which helps to efficiently operate the engine while keeping emissions low. By sending error alerts to the ECU system the OBD will recognise and notify the driver of engine failure. The ECU is responsible for many engine processes, including mixing air and fuel, emissions, and timing of the engines. The ECU uses sensors to track or make changes to these. When the ECU senses a malfunction, it causes the light on the dashboard to “test the engine.” The OBD program then logs the problem-related code. A qualified technician may access the code via engine diagnostic equipment for proper diagnosis of the problem.

Why Should You Have Engine Diagnostic Services Performed at Advanced Auto Care?

Diagnostics with the engine help to keep the engine running efficiently. The OBD system can detect malfunctions before they decrease engine output or cause serious damage. The mandatory OBD device enables your automobile to track and diagnose its own results. When the “test engine” light comes on you will have engine diagnostics done. Diagnosis of the engine can help diagnose issues early, so that small problems never develop into major problems. Engine diagnostics can help keep emissions low and your vehicle cannot pass an emissions check if your engine is malfunctioning.
