Check Engine Light
Witnessing the dreaded "Check Engine" light illuminating on your car's dashboard can be disconcerting.

Do not hesitate to reach out for our expert assistance either by calling 805-527-7741 or visiting our shop in Simi Valley.

Computer
Today, motor vehicles incorporate at least one computer in their design. These computers are essential for monitoring and optimizing engine and transmission operations. They receive input data from various sensors and regulate critical components, including spark plugs, idle speed, and fuel injectors, to ensure optimal car performance. Any malfunction in the car's computer can have a significant impact on the controlled functions. To maximize your car's computer performance, it is advisable to schedule regular evaluations for updates and proper operation. In case of computer failure, swift repair or replacement is essential.

Computer Reflashing
We are equipped with state-of-the-art technology to offer computer reflashing services to our valued customers in the Simi Valley area. Computer reflashing essentially involves updating or reinstalling the software on your vehicle's computer. This becomes necessary when manufacturers issue updates to enhance your vehicle's performance. It's a straightforward procedure, and it might include minor tweaks that your car hasn't yet received. Such updates could fine-tune the transmission-shifting algorithm or other parameters, contributing to enhancements in drivability, fuel efficiency, or emissions. Since auto manufacturers are continually releasing updates, your vehicle may be eligible for a reprogramming session.

Diagnostics
Our team of skilled mechanics is well-versed in diagnosing all the electronic components in your vehicle. For expert diagnostic services related to your car's electronic systems, visit BJ's Automotive today.

Drivability
Drivability refers to the level of smoothness and steadiness in your car's acceleration. Modern vehicles are equipped with on-board computers that continuously monitor data from various sensors. When drivability issues arise, your car's dashboard often displays a warning message. We are equipped with the necessary tools, training, and technology to effectively address any drivability concerns.

Engine Controls
The engine control system serves as an on-board computer within your vehicle. Like any computer, it consists of both hardware and software components. Automotive engine control systems play a crucial role in regulating exhaust emissions and enhancing fuel economy. To harness the full potential of your car's advanced technology, it is essential to ensure that the engine controls operate flawlessly. To verify the proper functioning of your car's engine controls, do not hesitate to contact us today.



Auto Diagnostic FAQs



How do vehicle diagnostic systems work?

OBD stands for On-Board Diagnostics and is a sophisticated computer that collects vital information from a network of sensors, monitoring engine performance, emissions, and other key functions. It not only regulates various car systems but also acts as a diagnostic tool, alerting you to potential problems before they become major issues.

How long does a car diagnostic last?

While a basic diagnostic test typically wraps up in 1-1.5 hours, complex issues demanding further examination and component access/testing can extend the process to 2-3 hours. The length ultimately depends on the severity of the problem and the potential presence of multiple underlying culprits.

What is included in a car diagnostic test?

Diagnostic tests are like X-rays for your vehicle, utilizing specialized equipment to scan its complex systems and components like the engine, transmission, and throttle. From minor oil tank issues to intricate electrical glitches, these tests diagnose a wide range of potential problems. However, interpreting the data they generate requires trained professionals, making dealer shops and skilled mechanics your best bet for accurate diagnoses.

Testimonials

, 01/19/2024
We had a customer come in today on a Hyundai Sonata and wanted to get a personal inspection with a mechanic they use. I have to say that from the very moment we pulled in Sue was there to help. They went over and assessed whole vehicle and gave it a clean bill of health. But, it's not the clean bill of health that impressed me, it was the honesty and thoroughness in which they looked out for one of their own customers and wasn't looking to upsell. As well, it also shows the integrity we have as a company in the PreOwned vehicles we provide. I have seen other clients use various service centers in the local area (Simi, Conejo and San Fernando Valley) and get told they need to do a various service work like flushes and tune up, or something was leaking on a vehicle that was still under factory warranty. My bother-in-law and various friends and acquaintances use and recommended them and now I know why! The service and integrity of BJ's Automotive is just too notch!!!
