Comprehensive Diagnostic Services at Chapel Hill Tire

Not sure what’s up with that strange sound? Car overheating and you don’t know why? Random light showing up on your dashboard? Come into Chapel Hill Tire for comprehensive diagnostic services, and our mechanics will examine exactly what’s going on with your car.

The Problem with “Free” Vehicle Diagnostics

While some mechanic shops offer “free” diagnostics, this method simply uses the OBD (on-board diagnostic) system to read your vehicle codes. These sensors can point you in the right direction of an issue, but they often lead you more to the symptoms of the problem rather than its source. When mechanics take this approach, they cut corners in the diagnostic process to get customers through the door using the promise of “free.” However, real diagnostics take time, careful engine inspection, and professional expertise. Thereby, “free” diagnostics can cost you more long-term as you find yourself experiencing repeated problems and needing frequent repairs. 

These diagnostics also often lead mechanics to arrive at costly repairs. For instance, the OBD system might suggest that you have transmission issues. This leads your mechanic to tell you that you need a brand-new transmission rather than detecting the need for a replacement sensor or a transmission fluid flush.
