Our electronic services include:

Check Engine Light
Witnessing the dreaded "Check Engine" light illuminating on your car's dashboard can be disconcerting. This light could indicate a significant issue, such as a faulty catalytic converter, or it could be a minor concern, like a loose gas cap. If your check engine light is on, call West End Garage and take a breath knowing that our team can retrieve the diagnostic code and accurately diagnose the problem for you. Do not hesitate to reach out for our expert assistance either by calling 501-455-4396 or visiting our shop in Little Rock.

Computer
Today, motor vehicles incorporate at least one computer in their design. These computers are essential for monitoring and optimizing engine and transmission operations. They receive input data from various sensors and regulate critical components, including spark plugs, idle speed, and fuel injectors, to ensure optimal car performance. Any malfunction in the car's computer can have a significant impact on the controlled functions. To maximize your car's computer performance, it is advisable to schedule regular evaluations for updates and proper operation. In case of computer failure, swift repair or replacement is essential.

Computer Reflashing
We are equipped with state-of-the-art technology to offer computer reflashing services to our valued customers in the Little Rock area. Computer reflashing essentially involves updating or reinstalling the software on your vehicle's computer. This becomes necessary when manufacturers issue updates to enhance your vehicle's performance. It's a straightforward procedure, and it might include minor tweaks that your car hasn't yet received. Such updates could fine-tune the transmission-shifting algorithm or other parameters, contributing to enhancements in drivability, fuel efficiency, or emissions. Since auto manufacturers are continually releasing updates, your vehicle may be eligible for a reprogramming session.

Diagnostics
Our team of skilled mechanics is well-versed in diagnosing all the electronic components in your vehicle. For expert diagnostic services related to your car's electronic systems, visit West End Garage today.

Drivability
Drivability refers to the level of smoothness and steadiness in your car's acceleration. Modern vehicles are equipped with on-board computers that continuously monitor data from various sensors. When drivability issues arise, your car's dashboard often displays a warning message. We are equipped with the necessary tools, training, and technology to effectively address any drivability concerns.

Engine Controls
The engine control system serves as an on-board computer within your vehicle. Like any computer, it consists of both hardware and software components. Automotive engine control systems play a crucial role in regulating exhaust emissions and enhancing fuel economy. To harness the full potential of your car's advanced technology, it is essential to ensure that the engine controls operate flawlessly. To verify the proper functioning of your car's engine controls, do not hesitate to contact us today.



Auto Diagnostic FAQs



How do vehicle diagnostic systems work?

OBD stands for On-Board Diagnostics and is a sophisticated computer that collects vital information from a network of sensors, monitoring engine performance, emissions, and other key functions. It not only regulates various car systems but also acts as a diagnostic tool, alerting you to potential problems before they become major issues.

How long does a car diagnostic last?

While a basic diagnostic test typically wraps up in 1-1.5 hours, complex issues demanding further examination and component access/testing can extend the process to 2-3 hours. The length ultimately depends on the severity of the problem and the potential presence of multiple underlying culprits.

What is included in a car diagnostic test?

Diagnostic tests are like X-rays for your vehicle, utilizing specialized equipment to scan its complex systems and components like the engine, transmission, and throttle. From minor oil tank issues to intricate electrical glitches, these tests diagnose a wide range of potential problems. However, interpreting the data they generate requires trained professionals, making dealer shops and skilled mechanics your best bet for accurate diagnoses.

What People Say About Us

  • reviewiconEngine Maintenance, near Little Rock, Tennessee
    , 02/01/2024

    On February 1, 2024 my 1999, Lexus 300 GS with 166k, had a catastrophic oil leak coming from the cam seals , crank seal, the VVTi gear O-Ring,. So at 10:30 PM at the Loves truck stop in Malvern, about 40 minutes south of Little Rock, I was stranded. Finally got a tow truck (Eastend Towing) to get me at 3 AM. and take me to the Hampton Inn, back in Little Rock, which was across the street from the Lexus dealership. Long story even longer. The Lexus dealership wanted $5398.64 as well as quoting a battery installation for $266.17? basically $5650! Plus the $117.26 diagnostic charge for the privilege of making me lock up like a fainting goat, and faint on their show room floor then having to wake myself up by wav ring an ammonia capsule under my nose at the sticker shock of that price! Then I remembered my little tow-truck driver, who had mentioned West End garage. So I called the owner Tim Baker and made arrangements for my Lexus to be towed to West End garage. Tim did a thorough diagnostic on it, came up with the exact same problems and quoted them each line for line, including adding these ADDITIONAL items to this extremely deep engine repair: both valve cover gaskets, a new timing belt, a new serpentine belt, a new OEM Denso alternator *(it was not the battery that the Lexus dealer was trying to sell me for $266.17 but rather it needed a new alternator. That alternator installed was $457.19) OK so here's the bottom line, Tim Baker at West End garage's total price for everything including the $457.19 alternator install was only $2252.88!!! So Tim Baker at West End garage and his team save me $3402 as opposed to the dealership, and that did not include the $100 Towing that was in that price!? Or the fact that he completely de-greased the engine! But here's the best part?. I drove there with my wife and special needs 18 year old son to pick the car up so that they could follow me back all the way to Nashville that's a 5 hour drive. on a Friday in the 4 o'clock traffic in the dark! When I cranked it up, everything was perfect! No leaks, no smells, no overheating. The heat gauge held perfectly at normal operating temperature for the entire five hours. We drove back to back through the night 75 miles an hour, and it ran like a sewing machine, purred like a kitten, runs like a scalded dog! In fact, it was running so good that I missed my exit and drove all the way through downtown Nashville! I waited a month before writing this review to be sure that there were no latent leaks. Everything is perfect!!!! I couldn't be happier, and I would HIGHLY recommend this shop to anyone and everyone, including Elon! Also, a big shout out to whoever that tow truck driver was (I can't remember his name for the life of me, but I will NEVER FORGET that big beautiful Smith & Wesson .357 Magnum he had on the dashboard!) if he hadn't of mentioned Tim Baker and the West End Garage who knows where I would be right now. Also, Tim gave me his cell phone number to send pictures back-and-forth while we were working through the car issues. How many shop owners will give you their cell phone number these days? Can't say enough good things about this garage, their service, their price, and their end result product AWSOME! This is the only review I've ever written in my entire life! No one has paid me to write this. So next time, let me encourage you, if you have a car repair, do not take it to any dealership, take it over to Tim Baker at West End Garage Tim Baker will fix you up from headlight to tail pipe!

    Needed a battery that was very difficult to install. It was costly, but the service was excellent and timely. I'll use West End again, definitely.

    This shop has always been excellent. We have a 2005 Toyota Sequoia and a 2010 Honda Odyssey which are still running great since we get them serviced regularly.

    Just used West End Garage for the first time this week. I was VERY happy! Their prices were very reasonable and they kept me informed of the progress of the work. They were knowledgeable without being arrogant or condescending which is especially refreshing as a woman who understands nothing about vehicles. I have definitely found my go-to mechanic for any future needs. Highly recommend this place for anyone who needs service on their vehicles.
