We’re a top-rated local computer diagnostics shop in Menlo Park, CA. We serve the San Francisco Peninsula including Atherton, Daly City, Palo Alto, and Belmont. Automobiles have evolved so much over the years. A large part of that evolution has been undeniably shaped by the computer. It was in 1968 that Volkswagen introduced using a computer to create an electronically controlled fuel injection system. In 1969, Ford followed by using a computer to implement a computer-controlled anti-skid system.

Today, your vehicle uses computers to operate everything from your air conditioning, radio, and anti-lock braking system, to your traction control, airbags, cruise control, and even your transmission. Also, computers are largely responsible for monitoring emissions and adjusting the engine to ensure that emissions are maintained below a certain level.

One of the good things about our vehicles relying so much on computers is that we can easily tap into those computers to identify potential problems and correctly diagnose and fix issues. For example, maybe your check engine light comes on but you have no idea why.

With a full computer diagnostics from M&R Auto Repair Shop, you can ensure that your car troubles are accurately identified the first time. Accurately identifying the problem and having it addressed immediately can save you money in the long run by making sure you are not paying for repairs you do not need and by getting after a problem when it is small and manageable before it blows up into something much more complex and expensive.


Brake Replacement

Your car’s braking system is the first line of defense in an impending accident. Driving a car with bad brakes puts the driver and other road users at risk of an accident. On the other hand, ensuring your vehicles have well-functioning brakes can save your life and other road users. Therefore, ensure your brakes are in good condition before driving.

A good braking system is important to a safe journey. At M & R Automotive Repair, we offer brake replacement services needed for the safe operation of the vehicle. We have expert technicians trained to fix your vehicle brakes. So you can be assured that your car is in safe hands.

Check engine light

When the dreaded check engine light comes on, you may cringe thinking about the possibility of another untimely and expensive car repair. If the light comes on and stays on, then often it is not an emergency but it should be addressed right away to prevent a small problem from becoming a major issue. If the check engine light begins to flash, then you may want to stop driving your vehicle, and if you can, have it towed directly to M&R Auto Repair Shop where we can run a computer diagnostics test right away to identify the problem.

Oxygen sensors

Oxygen sensors help to control the amount of oxygen your vehicle receives to help it burn fuel when you are driving. If the fuel is receiving too much oxygen, then your car can run lean. Too much oxygen and it will run rich. A computer diagnostics test can check to make sure that all of your oxygen sensors are working properly.

Air and coolant

A computer diagnostics test can help to determine if your coolant system is working adequately enough to keep the engine at a safe temperature to prevent overheating, cracked head gaskets, and engine failure. Sometimes a leak could exist in the coolant system that is not recognized with a check engine light warning. Also, the same computer diagnostics test can take a look at the air conditioning system to make sure everything is working properly.
