Modern methods and techniques employed to repair cars

18
As years pass by, every car undergoes its wear and tear condition after having run for some years.  Then it’s time for repairs and getting a car repaired is quite expensive. There is constantly new innovation and ways to repair products, that is why it is very important to get the right replacement for the parts of the car that have been damaged or disfigured.  Technology such as Professional Diagnostic Tools provide an alternative to traditional repairs, but vehicles need repairs either way.

This is where all the problems begin as most cars as well as their spare parts become redundant in a few years’ time. That is why cars are harder to repair nowadays.  Moreover, the automotive technician must be updated according to the demands of modern technologies and techniques, and in most auto repair centers the technicians have been forced to take up extra training to update their skills and capabilities in order to satisfy the modern needs, especially with vehicle diagnostic tools. Though there are efforts to introduce modern techniques and methods nowadays to make it possible to overcome the difficulty in fixing cars, there are still many apprehensions regarding the availability of getting the services in the entire auto repairs center.

Technology has rapidly improved, with the introduction and wide use of vehicle diagnostic tools by both motor repair shops as well as individuals. Vehicle diagnostic tools allow for users to easily access the point of damage and understand what part of the car needs repair.

Some of the modern methods and techniques employed to repair cars include:

Computerized Color matching techniques for painting is one of the methods used to get the paint to the exact color of the car that may have gone out of stock or is not manufactured any more. By using the Automotive diagnostic tools of photo-spectrometer, the color of the original paint is analyzed and then a matching color is obtained that flawlessly matches the original.

Dent Repair techniques is another new method used on cars to repair the dents that might occur due to accidents or hits.  Most mechanics face difficulty in fixing cars, with surfaces that are angular or curved in shape. But with the use of specialized tools and processes, it is possible to straighten out those dented surfaces in the car.

Straightening the car body-frame is another area where damages usually occur and is difficult to repair which explains why cars are harder to repair nowadays. With Autel MaxiSys Mini on the rise the body of the car gets damaged longitudinally and laterally. The inconsistency in its alignment is recognized by computerized methods and then alignment is done by a laser method to restore the shape.

When you purchase a NEXIQ USB-Link

 

When you purchase a NEXIQ USB Link you can rest assured that NEXIQ is working closely with each of the OEM’s to make certain that your purchase will be able to run operate all the OEM software and have the proper connector and communications with the truck.

Kind of like the Rolex, you don’t want to know what is inside the fake USB-Link from China. It might work, it may not work, and it may destroy the customers ECM. Hey, but you saved $50? We can guarantee that when you need new drivers for the next OEM software update that the China built NEXIQ USB Link will not work with the driver updates.

Nexiq’s next-generation NEXIQ 2 vehicle interface is designed to be five times faster than its predecessor and to support heavier bus loads on simultaneous channels. A Bluetooth module with an enhanced data rate has been added to support wireless vehicle-to-PC communication, while the USB connector now is built with a more robust automotive-grade connector and a latching mechanism for increased reliability.

ATEQ VT55 OBDII software is compatible for all Asian and European vehicle brands that require OBD synchronization and its software is updateable by using a standard USB cable connected to a PC. Our very simple PC interface guides the user through a minimal number of steps. An upgradable TPMS tool has never been so important as new Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensors are being fitted to new car models at an increasing rate.

Does GM tech2 Support Coding?

The tech2 and CANDI module worked perfect to diagnose my bad HVAC air door actuator. I have an older HP laptop running win7 and it has a serial port so has no problem to install software. Time will tell how this works out.

The tech2 scanner clone has done everything I have used it for. I have check and cleared codes including freeze frame data. I used it to test injectors on my friends NOVA 5.3 swap. It allowed me to pulse each injector so we knew they were not clogged.

The tool arrived today. The one I order from www.obd2tool.com did not have the case and cost €295.00 with DHL shipment. Below is the package I received. Does GM tech2 Support Coding? Yes, it does, but you need to buy an additional TIS2000, TIS2000 support cars programming until 2007 year.

GM trouble codes may be retrieved with or without a code scanner on pre-1993 GM vehicles, due to the type of OBD port connector of Vetronix GM Tech2 .This port has been changed in the later model vehicles, and Tech 2 Scanner is necessary to retrieve the codes. Once the codes have been retrieved, the accompanying site will have a list of the codes and their meaning. To erase the codes and turn the check engine light out.

Utilizing OBD-II Scanner Technology

You’re driving along the interstate or in bumper-to-bumper traffic. All of a sudden, your car emits an alarming noise and a little orange or yellow silhouette of a submarine pops up in the gauge cluster. Maybe the glowing icon appears and goes away and you never give it a second thought. Perhaps it comes on and then stays illuminated, even after you stop and restart your car. Or maybe it starts flashing. Spoiler alert: If the light is flashing you will want to pull over and stop the engine as soon as it is safely possible, your beloved transportation is warning you that enough is enough.

The majority of home mechanics may already have a trusty obd2 scan tool sitting on a shelf or in a vehicle glove box, but for the rest of us it is important to know exactly which kind of scan tool to purchase. Just as important is whether or not we need to purchase one at all. While this article is in no way meant to be an exhaustive discussion of today’s readily available OBD-II readers, my hope is to give you some basic information that will help you decide if you should invest in a scanner, as well as what type of scanner will best fit your needs.

Of course very few people keep the same car forever, and even if you do it is wise to buy a tool that can be used on more than one vehicle and easily upgraded in the future. If you find that your current ride only needs an inexpensive basic scan tool, you might want to buy a relatively cheap unit and retire the scanner with the vehicle when you sell it or trade it in. On the other hand, if you are making a sizeable purchase to cover all of your vehicle’s systems, the ability to upgrade will enhance the scan tool’s value well into the future.

While I have found the Internet (particularly Google searches) with the presented code or codes alongside the vehicle’s year, make, and model to be invaluable in diagnosing repairs, many of the better scan tools will provide the trouble code and a description of the code right on the scan tool’s screen. Some will even use vehicle-specific information to report which parts need to be replaced, adjusted or corrected to remedy the problem. While I think you can live without the extra information if you are handy searching online, having it all in one place is efficient and worth considering when making a purchase of Auto Scanner Tools.

Recently, a new wireless Bluetooth obd ii scanner that works with a smartphone or tablet has been introduced to the market. It changes the OBD-II rules, making complex code scanning and real-time vehicle information readily available even for those on a shoe string budget. The small Bluetooth-enabled harness plugs into OBD-II port and syncs up to your smartphone or tablet in a matter of seconds, allowing for easy vehicle scanning, an assessment of systems that are currently running and much more. The system also stores codes on your device’s internal memory and keeps extensive logs for future reference.
