Everyone knows the feeling when they look at their dashboard and see the ‘check engine’ light illuminated, staring them down. Or when their car starts making a funny noise that can’t be pinpointed to a certain source. Before you go into full panic mode, come into Kearny Mesa Automotive in San Diego for our car diagnostic experts to take a look at it! Our test services will calm your nerves — whether we are confirming that there may be a problem that has to be addressed or are letting you know that there is nothing to worry about. With the complexity of modern-day vehicles, save yourself the headache and let our highly-skilled technicians find the root of the problem. Schedule an appointment today with the mechanics you can trust. 

While you can always trouble-shoot at home, we recommend against it. Our diagnostic testing takes the guess-work out of looking under your hood or simply praying that your ‘check engine’ light goes off or the noise coming somewhere in the car disappears. When you come to Kearny Mesa Automotive in San Diego, our specialists will examine the following:

  • Pin-point testing
  • System analysis
  • Visual inspection of related components
  • A scan of your car’s computer system
  • Road test
  • Estimate for repair (if we find something that does need to be repaired)
  • Engine diagnostic services

A great thing — but also an unfortunate thing — about cars is that everything works together — quite literally like a well-oiled machine. When there is a kink in one system, it affects other parts of the car. For example, a ‘check engine’ light could be showing itself because of a glitch in your computer system, but it also could be an actual problem with your engine. Finding the solution to a car issue takes time, which is why we thoroughly test and accurately determine the real root of the issues, no matter what it is! We take pride in our trade and do everything with integrity. 

There could be a number of reasons why your car is running slowly, stalling, or showing illuminated lights on your dashboard. The last thing you want to do is wait for the problem to get worse before you decide to get your car checked out. It could be something as simple as a loose gas cap, but it could be as complex as an engine repair. No matter what it could be, let our professionals take a look at it. Our certified technicians use state-of-the-art equipment to run a diagnostic service before repairing your car so you can get safely back onto the open road.
