No-Start Diagnostics and Driveability Diagnostics

If you drive long enough, you will experience the problem eventually. You head out to the garage or down to the driveway, turn the key and hear absolutely nothing. Instead of the roar of the engine, you are greeted by only silence.

When that happens, your carefully planed day immediately goes out the window. Suddenly you wonder how you will get to work, how the kids will get to school and how you will accomplish all the things you need to do that day. When your car refuses to start, nothing else matters.

Diagnosing Starting Problems

If you are lucky, the failure to start will turn out to be nothing more than a dead battery. A tow truck ride and battery replacement later, you will be back on the road and back to your daily routine.

In other cases, you may not be so lucky, and the starting problem will be more complex than just a worn out battery. When that happens, you need expert diagnostics as well as quality repairs, and that is what Fairfax Auto Repair has to offer. At Fairfax Auto Repair, we have experience diagnosing even the most complicated starting problems, so you can know what is wrong and set it right.

Intermittent Starting Problems

Having your car fail to start in the morning is bad enough, but intermittent starting problems can be even worse. These intermittent failures to start seem to happen at the worst possible moments, like when you have a trunk full of groceries or a car full of screaming kids.

Intermittent starting problems can be notoriously hard to diagnose, but not for the automotive experts at Fairfax Auto Repair. We know what to look for, and we will run down the most likely causes of your starting problems until we find the exact issue.

Once we have isolated the problem, we will give you a list of recommended repairs, as well as a full explanation for each one. Once you agree, we will get to work, so you can be confident your car will start every time you turn the key.

Protecting Fairfax Area Drivers

There is nothing quite as frustrating as a car that refuses to start, but starting problems can put your safety at risk. If your car, truck or SUV shuts down in traffic, it could trigger a chain reaction crash. If you are stranded in a dark parking lot with a non-starting car, your personal safety could be at risk.

At Fairfax Auto Repair, we are dedicated to the safety of area drivers, and we work hard to make sure their cars start quickly every time. If you are having problems with your car, just give us a call or make an appointment. We will examine your entire staring system, find the problem and give you the confidence you need behind the wheel.
