If you’ve ever wondered why it is more complicated to diagnose an engine problem than it used to be, consider the fact that sophisticated computers now manage the fuel injection system, the ignition, and more. As a result, today’s vehicles emit less than a tenth of the tailpipe emissions (excluding C02) of their carbureted predecessors. This drastic cut in emissions is due in large part to tighter control of ignition timing and air/fuel ratio. However, an auto mechanic can no longer lift up the hood of a car and make simple adjustments to the carburetor. Instead, it takes a trained auto technician and a scan tool capable of analyzing trouble codes and data streams to diagnose computer and sensor problems.

Clearly, proper maintenance is vital to the longevity of your car. Keeping to the recommended maintenance schedule now can mean another 100,000 miles down the road. Our technicians are ASE Certified, which means you know that we have the experience and know-how to give your car the care and attention it will need to crank the speedometer a second time.
