Check Engine Light, Driveability, And Any Other Diagnostics For European Cars In Plano, TX

When it comes to diagnostics for European and Exotic vehicles, the technicians at EurAuto in Plano, TX are the best of the best. Our techs are expert diagnosticians and are proficient in using diagnostic computers, reading wiring diagrams, and using digital volt and ohm meters as well as oscilloscopes.

European cars have the most advanced electronics and computer networking systems of any cars in production today. The goal of automotive manufacturers is to be as efficient as possible. For this reason they will often power components off and on with the closest control module. So if we tell you that your BMW won’t start because the fuel pump isn’t running and the end diagnosis shows that the right rear seat belt control module is bad, well that’s just the way German engineers do things – and we have to figure that out.

Check Engine Light Diagnostics

One of the most common problems we see at EurAuto is an illuminated check engine light. This often strikes fear into the hearts of drivers, but it’s rarely as bad as people make it out to be in their heads. Check engine lights are often on because:
  • Of a vacuum leak
  • The fuel was filled while the car was running or the gas cap was left off or loose
  • A software update needs to be completed
  • A sensor has failed or is failing

It is true that continuing to drive your vehicle with its check engine light on can cause further damage. This is not the case 100% of the time, but until the issue is diagnosed, you just don’t know. When your check engine light comes on it’s probably not something that’s going to leave you stranded, but a simple vacuum leak can cause a car to run lean (or even rich) and cause damage to the catalytic convertors, components that cost thousands of dollars. It’s just not worth taking the chance.

Diagnosis Of Driveability Issues

Driveability issues are anything that affects how well your car runs or drives. Usually these are things like rough running, a “bogging” sensation on acceleration, poor fuel mileage, or a host of other issues.

Driveability is a specialty of ours at EurAuto. Just by the nature of the cars we work on, it has to be. People don’t invest in European or Exotic vehicles to have them not run to their full potential.

BMW calls their cars “The Ultimate Driving Machine”. Mercedes’ slogan is “The Best or Nothing”. We believe in these slogans and always strive to give our customers the experience that they bought into.
