Service Details

When our certified technicians perform engine diagnostics checks, they start by transmitting information from your vehicle's computer into a diagnostic tool. From here, the engine diagnostics service continues with the technician expertly combining the performance data with his/her experience to:

  • Properly diagnose why your vehicle's check-engine light is on

  • Develop a recommendation to repair you vehicle

  • Show you related symptoms, possible causes, and indicate the degree of urgency with which you need to get your vehicle serviced

  • Reset the check-engine light

Why is regular engine maintenance important for my vehicle?

Many critical problems can go unnoticed, and are almost impossible for even a certified technician to pinpoint without a professional diagnostic tool. And if your check-engine light is on, engine diagnostic services are the best way to determine exactly why. There are a number of possible reasons for an illuminated and/or flashing check-engine light:

  • Regularly scheduled engine maintenance (such as an oil change) may be due

  • Sensors or brake system may require reset or adjustment

  • Engine, electrical, or vehicle computer performance issues

How often should I have my engine serviced?

Your vehicle provides key information in dashboard lights. If the check-engine light is illuminated, you should take your vehicle into service as soon as possible.

However, for optimal vehicle safety and reliability, engine checks should be a part of your annual vehicle maintenance, even if no check-engine light is on or flashing.

American auto repair and performance is by far one of the best repair shops I have been to. They got me in quick and gave me a fair price for the work needed on my car. The owner John and his mechanics went above & beyond to ensure the work was done efficiently and in a timely manner. They communicated with me through the process. I had zero stress no hassle and a smooth transaction. It’s good to see that good business are still up and running. Try them out for yourself you won’t be disappointed. I will be a long term customer for sure
