On Board Diagnostics for Riverside MotoristsPosted July 17, 2022 11:33 AM
Some Riverside vehicle owners wonder why Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists and other Riverside auto repair shops charge a fee for vehicle diagnostics.
Receiving a diagnostic charge at Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists for a tricky automotive problem shouldn't be a surprise. In the Riverside area, automotive diagnostics can cover quite a range. If you hear a noise in your vehicle brakes when you slow down in rush-hour traffic on a busy CA road, you pull off at the next off-ramp and take a quick visual check. That is usually enough to know what needs to be done. If you're having an intermittent problem with your vehicle engine, however, a Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists diagnosis may be much more involved.
There's a common misconception among CA drivers that the trouble code tells the Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists technician exactly what's wrong. They wonder why there is a diagnostic charge because the scanner quickly gave the diagnosis.
In reality, it is not that easy and straightforward. The computer monitors many sensors throughout the vehicle. When one of these sensors has a reading that's out of parameters, the computer will record a trouble code and turn on the Check Engine light.
Some diagnoses are quick and easy. Others are more involved, time-consuming and difficult. Of course Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists wants to figure out what's wrong with your vehicle and get you back on the road as quickly as possible.

Good Day; The service at "Protrans" was "Top Notch "! Before I took my car to "Protrans", I took it to another service center and I was told that it needed a Transmission Replacement to the tune of $3,500.00. I then took it to "Protrans" for a second opinion and their tech found that all that was needed was for the front wheel bearing to be replaced. That was a savings of over $3,000.00 dollars! So if you need ANY work done on your automobile I would have "PROTRANS" check it out first.
