Car and Truck Computer Diagnostics Hampden Automotive


Today’s vehicles are much more complex. It often takes skilled technicians with advanced tools to get to the root cause of the problem.

When your Check Engine light comes on… a trouble code will store in one or more of your vehicle’s computer modules. There are certain conditions that must happen for a trouble code to set. It’s important for the technician diagnosing your car to check all components. Only then can that make an educated a repair decision.

The diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is the “tip of the iceberg”. The trouble code leads you to a general area for further testing. Then the technician can determine where the real fault is. Our ASE Certified experts are thorough.  We will test and determine the real cause of the warning light. This accomplished using only professional testing equipment. And over 20 years of experience in diagnosing vehicle repair issues.

Let our auto repair technicians take the guesswork out of diagnosing and repairing your vehicle. We will test drive your vehicle after repairs are complete to ensure the problem is resolved. Plus, we also provide a 12 month, or 12,000 miles guarantee for all automotive repairs.

    If part of Lincoln’s head is always covered by the tread, you have more than 2/32 of an inch of tread depth remaining.

  • Should I be using Synthetic Oil?

    Synthetic oil takes longer to break down. It should last for 4,000 to 6,000 miles or more between oil changes. Conventional oil should generally changed every 3,000 miles.
