Diagnosing Your Car

Celebrating 63 years of helping our clients have reliable, safe transportation.

How do you charge to find out what’s wrong with my car?

Oftentimes, our customers will bring in a car that is making a funny sound or has a CHECK ENGINE LIGHT. In other words the problem with the car is not clear cut and it’s going to take some time to check out the cause. We do this by using various testing equipment, visual inspections which sometimes involve taking things apart, and by the EXPERIENCE and KNOWLEDGE of our technicians. We have to charge for this service. What follows is our schedule for inspecting and testing.
