Engine and Other Diagnostics

The Subaru Select Monitor is just the beginning.....

The Subaru Select Monitor is an electronic diagnostic tool which has been used by Subaru Technicians for years to determine the "health" of the engine and transmission.  But unless you know what to DO with the information obtained from the monitor, it does you very little good.  Add to this data years of experience with Subarus and several years of owning multiple SVX's, and we have the knowledge and expertise needed to find and correct almost any problem we encounter.

Here are just a few of the items we look at with the Select Monitor:

  • TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) voltage
  • Sensors (crank angle, cam angle, knock, Oxygen)
  • Engine Temperature and Coolant Temperature
  • Timing Advance / Retard
  • Transmission Temperature

But the select monitor has its limitations; it can only diagnose electrical problems.  Diagnosing mechanical problems requires keen eyes and ears as well as experience.  We take your car for a test drive and listen to that "strange sound" coming from "the back somewhere" and then put it up on the lift to see if it's a wheel bearing, axle or just a heat shield rattle.

We'll make sure that problem, whatever it is, goes away.
