Automotive Computer Diagnostics
Our York county, PA transmission shop employs the latest technology and equipment to scan computer in your car or truck for problems. During the computer diagnostics, our technician will also check your vehicle's electrical components, solenoid and sensor elements, as well as its wiring.
More than half the problems that find their way into today's transmission shops are not caused by the transmission. The computer in your car or truck may become faulty; and this results in sending your transmission faulty signals. Today's high tech vehicles are closer to a space shuttle than to a Model "T" and require highly skilled technicians to repair them. High tech and economics require shops be compensated for accurate and efficient diagnostics.

Three Tiers for Diagnostic Fees
Not all diagnostic work is billable. To get an idea of how much of your car's diagnostic service is billable and what it will cost, here is a quick explanation of the Three Tiers of Diagnostic Fees.
Tier 1: Verifying the Complaint
During the first tier, we go over the details of your complaint, and try to verify them under actual operation. This may include a basic visual examination, checking the fluid level and condition, and a thorough road test, if possible.
Tier 2: Isolating the Source
The second tier is to determine whether the problem is inside the transmission or in one of the external systems that affect its operation. You won't be charged for a second tier diagnosis if (a) the problem is inside the transmission, and (b) you agree to have us perform the repairs.
Any other conditions involve billable diagnosis. Second tier diagnosis usually takes between 30 minutes and one hour.
Tier 3: Pinpointing the Diagnosis
In most cases, third tier diagnosis only takes place if the condition is being caused by the computer system or one of the external systems affecting transmission operation. Because of this, almost all third tier diagnosis is billable.
Third tier diagnosis usually takes between 45 minutes and two hours, but can go longer depending on the problem.
No one likes to spend money on diagnosis. But a well-planned diagnosis can actually save you money... and isn't that really what's important?
