Engine Performance

Engine Diagnostics

Today’s vehicles are equipped with highly sophisticated electronic engine control systems. The computer receives information from a network of sensors and switches that tells your ignition, fuel and emission control systems what to do. At the first sign of any engine problems, such as rough running, low fuel economy, failure to pass an emissions test or dashboard warning lights, be sure to get service as soon as possible. By tapping into your vehicle’s computer, technicians at this Tire and Service Network facility can check a multitude of engine components:

  • Ignition system
  • Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)
  • Restraint systems
  • Fuel injection system
  • Emissions
  • Electrical

If your vehicle has any of the following symptoms, our technicians at this Gemini Automotive Care facility can properly diagnosis engine problems and make the proper repairs.

  • Difficulty starting the vehicle or engine
  • The “check engine” light on the instrument panel lights up
  • Rough idling or stalling
  • Poor acceleration
  • Poor fuel economy
  • Excessive oil use (more than one quart between changes)
  • Engine continues running after the key is removed
  • Your vehicle cranks over but won’t start
