For a general overview when inspecting a vehicle, when a customer brings their vehicle to our auto repair shop in Houston Tx we go through 3 simple steps.

Step 1: We first inspect the outside of the vehicle (Body, paint, tires, lights, frame) and view the engine to check for any immediate discrepancies that are visible.

Step 2: Then, we will connect our scanner tools to your vehicles computer system and scan the vehicles electrical components, and if there are any issues our scanner will have specific codes that represent specific malfunctions that vehicle is currently having.

Step 3: We will then put your vehicle on our lift system to see if there are any leaks or damages beneath the vehicle.


Every mechanical situation is different and our method to find the exact problem may differ depending on the specific issue the vehicle is experiencing.

For instance, for some mechanical issues we do a short test drive to feel or hear any key noises and specific indicators.
