💬 ‘I just wanted to thank you for today. I can already tell the difference, showing smoother acceleration, more torque at lower revs and generally just a smoother running engine. Thank you for the diagnostics, they will be addressed at the garage. Excellent service, I will highly recommend you and certainly use your services again‘

🚗 Here we have a Honda Accord 2.2 diesel (2005 – 171,595 miles) booked in after the owner had not long purchased it and wanted to get it checked for issues and get it running sweetly again.
🔎 Initial inspection found little of note in the engine bay with a bass note typical of the mileage on the vehicle.
💻 Initial diagnostics found a number of codes logged from the last few years which were documented and cleared for the owner. Just the one returned during the booking for the Brake Pressure Sensor.
ℹ️ Perfect timing on this one as with a service due a week later that gave the owner the chance to put some miles on it and get it checked again at the service. This will help identify which of the other codes return to identify what the active issues are.
📊 Live data showed the coolant temperature get to a maximum of 86°C and with the heating turned on again the temperature only dropped to 82°C. Other data looked OK so on with the clean.
👨🔧 The bass note soon started to dissipate as the engine smoothed out and quietened down and the subtle noise from the exhaust flex joint became clearer confirming a slight leak which needs looking at. By the end it nice and quiet, smooth and responsive again.
