Most of today’s vehicles are controlled by on-board computers, whether you realize it or not. Your vehicle’s fuel injectors, steering system, spark plugs, and others are all told when to fire and when to move by an onboard computer system.
The computer is responsible for turning on your Check Engine or other vehicle warning light. When something in your vehicle or your engine goes wrong, it is your on-board computer system that effectively diagnosis the problem so that it can be repaired. At Gouty's Servicenter, we offer computerized diagnostics for drivers in Fort Wayne, IN, Blufton, IN, Ossian, IN, and the surrounding areas.
Computerized diagnostics are important to make sure your vehicle is working right.
The OBD System, or On-Board Diagnostics System, was originally installed to monitor vehicle emissions. It also detects problems within the engine or other vehicle systems.
Both OBD I and OBD II systems exist. OBD II systems becoming the standard in vehicles manufactured after 1996.
The OBD is connected to the engine control unit (ECU). The ECU helps your engine run efficiently while keeping emissions low.
The OBD system is capable of finding malfunctions before they lower engine performance or cause severe damage.
The OBD system is mandatory. Because of this, your car is capable of monitoring and diagnosing its own performance.
You should have engine diagnostics performed when the “check engine” light comes on. Engine diagnostics will help detect problems early. This keeps small problems from becoming big or costly problems.
Engine diagnostics also help keep emissions low. If your engine is malfunctioning, your vehicle might not pass an emissions test.
