We specialize on Japanese nameplate vehicles and also work on domestic cars, with an emphasis on driveability concerns and repairs.

Snap-on Vantage Graphing Digital Multimeter — One of the best base-level diagnostic tools that can help even a beginner technician become accurate and productive in diagnosing and repairing driveability and electrical system problems.

Snap-on MT2500 Scan Tool — Being able to access and communicate to onboard vehicle control systems is critical to effect emission and control system repairs. The Snap-on scan tool is a great general scan tool that allows us to fix today’s cars.

Very user friendly, highly accurate lab scope for zeroing in and verifying electrical problems, especially on ignition systems and sensors for fuel and emission controls.

Mitchell On-Demand Information Systems — Having accurate and detailed wiring diagrams and information is absolutely essential to repair today’s cars. The service and technical bulletins are so necessary, especially if you are working on a particular make/model you may not see that often.

iATN — International Automotive Technicians Network (iATN.net) — An absolutely unparalleled source of training, database, networking and camaraderie to help technicians in the trenches to learn, diagnose and fix cars, and also provide a means to connect with other technicians to address the problems we all see every day in our chosen profession. The best value for the dollar, bar none!
