5 Reasons to get a Mobile Car Diagnostic

mot loughborough

There’s a whole host of reasons you need to get a diagnostic check. Often, your car isn’t working as it should be and you may not even realise. With our 5 reasons to get a mobile car diagnostic you will be able to spot some of the tell-tale signs that all is not quite how it should be.

    1. Not getting the mileage that you used to out of a full tank?

A high rate of fuel usage is a big sign that your car may need a diagnostic check. Oxygen sensors that check your car’s air fuel mixture may degrade as they get older. This leads them to tell the engine to add more fuel to the mixture when in fact the car doesn’t need it, meaning a much higher fuel consumption than usual.

    1. Car idling too low / too high?

If, when ticking over, your car is revving higher or lower than usual that is a primary reason to have a mobile car diagnostic. It may be a relatively slight problem but it’s often the best indication of an engines health. Common symptoms are a slower than usual idle, or quicker, higher and lower idling.
The cause could be one of a number of reasons, such as a fault in the engines computer which handles the engines running system. The best thing to do is call one of our mechanics for a mobile diagnostic check.
