Anybody unfortunate enough to have experienced a breakdown or have suffered long-term car trouble, will, I’m sure, know the importance of an in depth and accurate systems or engine diagnostic check. It is quite simply, absolutely essential that a precise diagnosis of the root cause of a vehicle’s fault be first established in order to enable a quick and cost effective repair, thereby avoiding the replacement of unnecessary components.

The specialist equipment I use includes various makes of Automotive and Digital Storage Oscilloscope. These include the Bosch KTS 570 scanner and FSA 450 MotorScope. Also included in my arsenal of electronic diagnostic tools is the Autodiagnos MT Pro, and for earlier models, the trusty Sykes Pickavant ACR4 is still turning out results. For Emissions failure diagnostics a Bosch 4Gas Exhaust Gas Analyser backs up the above equipment with Lambda exhaust gas analysis, a critically essential piece of equipment in this work. All of the above equipment enables me to provide you with a service that is at the cutting edge of vehicle diagnostics. Also running from laptop is the PicoScope and as stand-alone ‘scopes I have a Bosch PMS100 (which is absolutely brilliant at Relative Compression Testing – does it without even taking the spark plugs or glow plugs out. )

Specifically covering the Vauxhall range I have the Tech2 which, backed up by Vauxhalls Full Technical Support enables dealer level diagnostics on this make, as does the VAG-Com unit that I run from a laptop for interrogating the VW-Audi-Seat-Skoda range of vehicles.


Peugeot, Citroen and Renault are covered to Dealer level with the French System from Autologic. This system gives me full, dealer level diagnostics and programming capability on Peugeot, Renault and Citroen

The above equipment (and other smaller items) allows me to identify and rectify faults at ‘dealer level’. This means I am frequently able to effectively and efficiently correct faults or activate units, where required, that would otherwise require the vehicle to be sent to a main dealer, often resulting in great inconvenience and expense for the vehicle owner.
