Because we operate as part of the Bosch Autocrew Network, Nash Mills Mot and Service Centre are already working in unison with a market-leading brand synonymous with trade and industry innovation. Bosch are experts in engine management and vehicle diagnostics, bringing their expertise and knowledge to our company for the benefit of customers in Hemel Hempstead, St Albans and the surrounding county of Hertfordshire.
Being a Bosch Autocrew member gives us priority access to trade innovation and technology from the moment it first enters the automotive sector. Advanced code equipment with Bosch and manufacturer approval is used to perform engine diagnostics on all modern mass-produced vehicles fitted with an ECU. Because common faults are made easy to recognise, engine diagnostics help to reduce the overall cost of repair bills.
Vehicle owners in Hemel Hempstead, Watford and St Albans can visit our workshop in Nash Mills for a complete range of engine management services. Engine diagnostics may sound complicated but the process is actually very simple to explain. Your vehicle’s ECU (an on-board computer) warns you of potential problems with your engine or an auto-electrical component by displaying a warning light on the dashboard.
Most modern vehicles are fitted with an ECU and the complexity of on-board computers increases all the time. Engine diagnostics are used to provide a detailed scan of your vehicle sub-system, much like a CT scan in a hospital is used to perform a full health check of the human body. Diagnostics are performed using computerised equipment that plugs directly into the interface of the ECU.
Your vehicle’s on-board computer transmits stored codes to our equipment. These codes are translated to give our technicians a clear indication of what is wrong with the vehicle. Instead of having to spend several hours troubleshooting, engine diagnostics indicate problems almost immediately. Less time spent analysing problems is great news for car owners in Hemel Hempstead and St Albans because repair costs significantly decrease.
Engine diagnostics can identify anything from the need for an oil change to a complex issue within your vehicle’s transmission system. The data received on our equipment relates to individual faults that we subsequently reference through a code book. This means we have an immediate idea of where the problem lies, making it much easier for us to provide a full, accurate diagnosis and a suitable method of repair.
Vehicle owners in the local area are advised to visit Nash Mills Mot and Service Centre as soon as an engine management light appears on the dashboard. Engine diagnostics can help to eliminate problems before they increase and cause further engine or component damage. This ultimately save money on parts, labour and any other associated long-term repair costs. Engine diagnostics are part of a wider range of auto-electrical services that we offer.
If you live in the Hemel Hempstead or St Albans areas and would like to discuss engine diagnostics in more detail, call in to see us today. We’ll explain the process in more detail and we’ll even show you a few examples of the engine management equipment that we use. Nash Mills Mot and Service Centre only use diagnostic tooling with full Bosch approval.
