Engine Diagnostics Test £35 +VAT

Engine diagnostic tools allow technicians and mechanics to ‘plug-in’ to your car systems – usually called an Engine Control Computer (ECU) – using a computer or specialist machine. This machine communicates with the engine to find out how all of the component parts are holding up. The machine runs tests then displays codes to the mechanic which can then be worked on. This takes a lot of the guesswork out of finding faults and speeds up the diagnostic process and eliminating errors from ordering parts saving everyone involved time and money.

When do you need engine diagnostics?

Have you ever noticed those little lights that occasionally appear in your dashboard? They are there to indicate potential problems with your cars engine. These are best not ignored. Bring your car in if one of these lights appears and we will ‘plug-in’ to your ECU to get to thew bottom of the problem.

Lower than dealer prices

Generally speaking, car dealers with a captive audience tend to charge a premium for their engine diagnostics tests. Our machines can run the same tests at a fraction of the price. Come into the garage today to fix all your warning lights. AB Auto Repair Chard | Engine Diagnostics

Customer Testimonials

If you have any problems with your axles on your Peugeot/Citroen vans or cars then get yourselves aquainted with these guys, I travelled 115 miles today to get my berlingo axle sorted and I wasn’t disappointed. A top job done in super quick time and at a price I was well happy with : )
Well Done and Thanks Guys!

My 205 gti rear beam started feeling worn out so I bought a refurbished beam from AB Axles. I was impressed with the work - it was cleaned up properly and care was taken when being rebuilt and painted. I'm so impressed with how tight the rear end now feels. Top quality work from these guys and will recommend to anyone. Customer service is excellent. Would definitely use again in the future.

Just drove 2 and a half hours to see these guys after my beloved saxo failed it's mot due to play in the rear radius arm, I was quoted over £500 and 5 hours by a local garage. AB Axles did it for £300 in 2 hours, kept me well informed throughout and were a pleasure to deal with. Would definitely recommend, lovely guys and amazing service!
