What are vehicle diagnostics?
The modern motor vehicle is highly sophisticated. Most of the engine and electrical devices are controlled by on-board computer,
known as an Engine Control Unit (ECU) which continually monitors the performance of the vehicle. Sensors all around the vehicle
report back to the ECU if there are problems such as low fluid levels or increased engine temperature.
When an issue is identified the ECU generates an error code. There are hundreds of different codes and trying to locate the cause
of a problem is near on impossible without having access to the right diagnostic equipment and the right expert knowledge.
An engine diagnostics check can help identify the problem before more serious damage occurs.
Sixers Group garages are equipped with the latest diagnostic equipment which can read your vehicle's on board computer error codes.
Our fully-trained technicians can then quickly locate the problem and carry out the repairs to get you back on the road.
