Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their truck’s “Check Engine” light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Auto Clinic, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 519-836-5680 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Computer Diagnostics
Modern vehicles are fitted with at least one onboard computer. The computer’s main function is to monitor and adjust the engine and transmission. Computer testing and diagnostics is an integral aspect to professional electronic work on modern cars. Computer diagnostics help find the root causes of major and potential automobile problems. At Auto Clinic, we have state of the art computer diagnostics equipment such as digital code readers, pressure test kits, circuit testers, digital tachometers and more. Call 519-836-5680 or visit our auto shop in Guelph, Ontario N1K1E9 for all your vehicle’s computer diagnostic needs.

Drivability
Drivability is the degree of smoothness and steadiness of your truck’s acceleration. Most modern vehicles are fitted with on-board computers that continuously check the readings from various sensors. In case of drivability problems, you will receive a warning message on your truck’s dashboard. To have your truck diagnosed for drivability issues, visit Auto Clinic in Guelph, Ontario N1K1E9 today. At Auto Clinic, we have the necessary tools, training, and technology to diagnose and address your vehicle’s drivability issues.

Engine Controls
Basically, an engine control system is an on-board computer in your truck. Like all computers, the engine controls are composed of hardware and software. Automotive engine control systems are responsible for regulating exhaust emissions, and providing increased fuel economy. To get the best out of your vehicle’s incredibly powerful technology, make sure engine controls are working properly. To check if your truck’s engine controls are working properly, call Auto Clinic today. Have a dead battery? Misfiring starter or alternator?

Batteries
The battery supplies electric energy which powers the ignition system, the starter motor, and the lights of an automotive.

Starters
A starter is a motor (electric, hydraulic or pneumatic) that rotates the internal combustion engine to initiate the engine’s operation. Starters are important parts of your car’s engine and their failure would translate to your car’s failure. When your car’s starter develops problems, seek expert help.
