Check Engine Light
Witnessing the dreaded "Check Engine" light illuminating on your car's dashboard can be disconcerting. This light could indicate a significant issue, such as a faulty catalytic converter, or it could be a minor concern, like a loose gas cap. If your check engine light is on, call Reliable Automotive and take a breath knowing that our team can retrieve the diagnostic code and accurately diagnose the problem for you. Do not hesitate to reach out for our expert assistance either by calling 314-733-5455 or visiting our shop in St. Louis.

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 St. Louis 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 Reliable 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.

Auto Electrical Repair & Maintenance


what our customers say

My 2000 BMW 323i broke down and would not start near St. Louis, MO during my drive from Cincinnati, OH to Los Angeles, CA. They towed my car to the auto shop and replaced the alternator. Although the shop closes at 5:30 pm and my car arrived after closing hours, they stayed until 8:00 pm to complete the job. I found the shop to be honest trustworthy and they changed a reasonable price for the work. I was able to continue my trip with only a two-hour delay. I consider myself lucky to have my car breakdown near this shop. I highly recommend this shop. They did an outstanding job.

Honest and professional repair shop! I can't say enough positive things about the crew and owner of this shop. If I could add an extra star I would.... This is the type of shop you look for to regularly service your vehicle. On a recent road trip from PA to Colorado we had a mechanical issue that required immediate assistance. We were able to limp the vehicle into the shops parking lot on a Friday night at closing time. The owner and his son didn't shoo us away but instead put the vehicle on a lift to determine if they could get us back on the road. After about an hour, they made the necessary repair and we were on our way. The price was fair... actually better than fair considering our circumstance. Great guys with integrity and an exceptional sense of humor. Make this your "go to" shop.... I would if I weren't 600 mile away. Thanks again guys!
