Check Engine Light Diagnosis

The difference between Paid and Free Diagnosis

“Why do I have to pay for you to tell me what’s wrong with my car?” With all of the information available online these days this is becoming a more frequent question. When your Check Engine Light comes on it can be a scary sight. An immediate reaction might be to seek Free Diagnosis to get some answers to your questions and hopefully cut the already unknown costs.

Going online to research the specific problem you’re having is no better than going online to Web Md when you have a sniffle. You’re going to leave the internet after a few hours unintentionally misinformed and thinking you have a much worse issue than you probably really even have.

The short answer as to why we charge to tell you what’s wrong with your car is because it’s worth it! Free diagnosis of any issue is worth every penny you pay for it.

Back in the 1970’s and early 80’s cars were much more basic. 90% of issues causing them to run rough or stumble could be fixed with a basic Tune Up. Now approaching 2020, cars drive themselves. With such complex systems a common misconception is that there is a super computer that we can plug in and it tells us exactly what’s wrong with your vehicle in a matter of seconds. The reality is, that’s just FALSE! It simply doesn’t exist.

What is vehicle diagnosis?

Check Engine Light Diagnosis at Precision Auto Repair in West Springfield MAThink of your car as the illustration of the buildings. Every floor represents a system and each window represents a different part in each system. What paying for diagnosis does is put us on the floor of the correct building. It’s up to our Technicians to use their training and a host of specialty tools to determine exactly which room has the problem. In most cases, this takes time.

If we didn’t do it this way we would end up replacing a  lot of parts that didn’t need to be replaced and it would end up costing a whole lot more than when we properly diagnose issues. Not to mention it would take a whole lot longer too.

In general you will want to prepare for each concern you have or each light you have on your dash taking us about an hour. Not that it always takes that long, but it’s a great rule of thumb. Some issues do overlap. So in those cases when one issue is causing another, we go after the largest issue first. Again, a lot of training goes into how to properly diagnose not only to ensure accuracy but to also ensure we don’t waste time going after the wrong things.

To make it even more simple, think of it this way. If you come in with 3 specific issues, plan on it taking us 3 hours to determine what has failed and why. Time you request us to spend is time you will be billed for. If we don’t use it, you don’t pay for it.

This is the only way we can comfortably stand behind what we’re requesting to replace. If this is not for you and you rather we simply guess based on information you or a friend found online then you will never be happy with us or the service we provide. While there are a whole host of reasons to come to us, none of them include us repairing cars based on guesses. We prefer to fix cars based on facts and replacing parts that we know are bad.

If that doesn’t work for you, please do not leave your car with us for service. We either perform the job properly, or we don’t do the job at all. Your safety is depending on us and we won’t let you down.

“Why do part stores diagnose my car for free?”

That’s simple, they don’t diagnose. They GUESS!!

Think of it as spear fishing or fishing with a net. Diagnosis is spear fishing, we’re targeting a fish. Part stores throw out a net and hope to catch something but in reality they pull back a bunch of junk.

Our goal is to fix your car, theirs is to sell parts. When they scan for codes they sell you common parts. If it doesn’t fix the car, they sell you more parts that you need to put in.

Still want Free Diagnosis?

Perfect! We want to give it to you. We have quite a few Customer Loyalty Programs that either discount services such as diagnosis or they Precision Auto Repair West Springfield MA Customer Loyalty Cardallow you to get services totally free.

No one is cheaper than me!! No one! I just ran out my factory warranty and about a week later my ABS Light came on. Fearing the worst I did a ton of research online and went into the guys at Precision with my own part and clearly insisting that I knew what was wrong because, I know everything. The guys insisted that I try it their way. Boy was I on the wrong track before them. Not only was all the research I did totally wrong, the issue I was having wasn’t even related to anything to do with my brakes like I thought. They were able to make a few basic adjustments and I was back to work in under an hour and for way less than I would have paid if I did it my way. These people are true professionals and I’m very pleased with their process. I’m also more pleased with the fact that they didn’t make me feel dumb for wasting my time before I asked a professional for help.

Brake Job Savings

Brake Savings in West Springfield MA

Hearing a little bit of a noise when slowing down? Maybe just a shake coming off the highway when you hit the brakes?brake springfield ma

Not to worry, we’ve got you covered with our limited time special below.

Simply print the coupon at the bottom of the page or show it to us when you get here.

Summer driving is here and the instant rebates on brake jobs right now is higher than we’ve ever seen. Take advantage while it lasts! – James Stephenson, President/ Precision Auto Repair & Sales

Brake job includes:

  • Full Inspection performed by a trained Technician
  • Report of all findings
  • Premium Brake Pads and Rotors or Drums and Shoes (depending on braking system)
  • Complimentary Precision Multi-point Inspection – “We want to make sure that you’re safe”

If there happens to be another issue with the brakes, don’t worry! You can use this coupon towards that too.

FAQ:

Q: How much is a brake job?

A: It really depends on the vehicle. Average cost for cars is about $390 – $475 per axle (for the front or rear). Average for light trucks can still vary but in most cases it’s about $75 more than a car per axle. Then in some rare cases specialty cars can run even more.


Q: Do I get a quote first?

A: Every single time! All quotes start with a brake inspection. The inspection generally takes 30-45 minutes. If you choose to do the repair with us we waive the inspection cost because we had already removed the wheels and in some cases a portion of the brakes to check them properly.


Q: Can I finance a brake job?

A: Absolutely! Most customers coming in these days are actually taking advantage of our 90 day payment option. It only takes about 5 minutes to apply and you can use the money the same day. Our only recommendation there it to pay it off within 90 days or you will see a finance charge. Prior to 90 days it’s a flat $40 fee regardless of the amount borrowed.


Q: How do I apply for a payment plan.

A: Just give us a call or stop by. It only takes about 5 minutes of your time and the approval rate is about 92%.
