Free Automotive Diagnostic Help
When you are experiencing car trouble, diagnosing the problem can often be harder and more time-consuming then fixing the problem once you find it. Dealerships and auto repair shops can charge outrageous fees to hook your vehicle to a diagnostic machine and still not find the problem. But there are ways to diagnose your problem for free.
Auto Zone is another store that offers free services. They will test batteries and alternators to see if they are causing the problem and will also use a diagnostic machine to establish what other problems may exist, according to the company website.
Beware of sites that promise free diagnostics but don’t follow through. One such site allows you to submit your auto question for what it claims is free but then redirects you to a site where experts answer questions in exchange for small fees. The fees are usually considerably less expensive than taking your vehicle to a mechanic but are still not the free answers promised.
