Check Engine Diagnostics in Campbell, CA
That stupid check engine light has come on again. That’s the fourth time this month! Your vehicle doesn’t sound or feel any different, and its performance or gas mileage doesn’t seem to be affected, so you’re OK just ignoring it, right? Wrong. Your check engine light is also known as a malfunction indicator lamp, and for good reason. It indicates that something is amiss with your vehicle. It could mean something as minor as an ill-fitting fuel cap, or it could signal a breakdown in the very near future. Why take a chance, especially with a German or European vehicle? Bring it in to BTM Motorwerks and get to the heart of the problem right away.
Time is money—we’ll save you both
In the past, diagnosing a performance or mechanical problem with a vehicle was a long, drawn-out trial and error process. Thankfully for everyone involved, BTM Motorwerks uses state-of-the-art computer diagnostics to pinpoint the cause of check engine indicators quickly and efficiently. The most common issues our mechanics tend to detect in German and European cars tend to be:
- Airflow sensor problems
- Low tire pressure
- Oxygen sensor malfunction
- Catalytic converter problems
- Spark plug wires not connecting properly
- Onboard computer failure
- Worn brake pads
Naturally, we can’t guarantee that any of the above are activating your vehicle malfunction lamp. Your best course of action is to bring your German or European vehicle in to BTM Motorwerks as soon as your check engine light comes on. Call our team in Campbell, CA, for an appointment, or just drive on in. We’ll do our level best to get your engine service completed as quickly as possible.
Be proactive, not reactive
Perspective is everything. So next time your vehicle’s check engine light comes on, instead of seeing it as an annoyance, see it as an opportunity. Your vehicle is essentially giving you a chance to nip a small problem in the bud, before it becomes a big problem that leaves you stranded on the roadside. When you bring your vehicle in to our San Jose-area auto repair shop, BTM Motorwerks’ trained mechanics will:
- Check each sensor’s input and output signals
- Check your vehicle’s ignition system
- Listen for misfires or backfires
- Perform compression tests
- Examine onboard computer connections for optimal performance
- Do power balance testing
As soon as your check engine light comes on, it’s time to call our shop and make a “preemptive strike” against car trouble.
