The garage mechanic are numbered, so except when working on older cars designed before engine diagnostic computerization was available. You have to do is look under the hood and realize that a lot has changed over the years. You can no longer even see many of the engine components, because they are hidden inside closed units. Access to components requires specialized tools and training.

What has really brought about the biggest changes in Mobile Mechanic Reading repairs is the use of electronics and computers. Now everything from components to circuit boards to computerized diagnostic equipment is used, which means that the simple wrench and screwdriver go the way of the dinosaurs. Yes ... hand tools are used, but they are specially designed to fit odd-angled components and many now provide digital readings.

But of all the radical changes in auto repair services is the use of mobile diagnostic equipment like the one found in Mobile Car Care vans. What was previously only possible in a repair shop with large and bulky machinery can now be done by connecting mobile computerized diagnostic equipment to the car to get a reading of the problem.

There is a variety of equipment used in road or field testing, including mechanical, electrical, component, transmission, and air conditioning equipment that tests for malfunctions. The computer produces fault codes that are the equivalent of your car "talking" to the mechanic.

Of course, getting codes and knowing what to do with those codes are two very different things. The codes are simply clues to the problems and should match the full set of code descriptions available in the software programs. The Mobile Car Care Mechanic is a fully qualified and highly trained service technician who spends many hours learning how to successfully operate diagnostic equipment and interpret the results.

The auto detective

Auto mechanics are like detectives looking for the culprit who is wreaking havoc on the car. Tracking down the problem means first testing the components and systems and then isolating the specific problem. The tests include the use of diagnostic computers installed in portable and mobile vans.

Fault codes indicate that something is not working within the manufacturer's comparative standards. The technician obtains the code readings and then uses an online computer to look up the description of the problems that the fault codes document. The goal is to repair the car so that the components work again within the established standards.

Training to be the best

Mobile Mechanic Reading mechanics must be able to handle the sophisticated diagnostic equipment in their mobile repair vans. Mechanics attend state-certified apprenticeship training programs and spend many additional hours in training workshops to keep up with technological advances. As a member of VACC, Mobile Car Care has access to the most up-to-date auto repair technical information available in the industry.

The mechanics at Mobile Car Care are truly technical in every sense of the word. After many hours of training, they are fully qualified to use computer diagnostic equipment that includes what is necessary to evaluate braking systems, transmissions, air conditioning units, electronic components, electrical systems, on-board upgrades such as global positioning systems, ignition systems, fuel injection. emission control systems and systems.
