Diagnostics

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Dakota K Auto Repair & Tire Center, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 847-398-4645 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Computer
Today, car manufacturers include at least one computer in motor vehicles. This computer's main function is to monitor and adjust engine and transmission operations. The computer receives input information from different sensors. The computer controls spark plugs, idle speed, and fuel injectors so as to get you the best possible car performance. Failure of the car computer will greatly affect the things it controls. To get the most out of your car's computer, have it evaluated regularly for updates and proper operation. If it is already failing, have it repaired or replaced. To have your car's computer handled by experts, visit Dakota K Auto Repair & Tire Center in Arlington Heights, IL 60004 today.

Computer Reflashing
Dakota K Auto Repair & Tire Center has state-of-the-art equipment to provide computer reflashing to our customers in the Arlington Heights area. The primary reason to reflash a computer (which basically means updating or reinstalling its software) is that an update has been issued by the manufacturer. It's a very simple procedure, and there may be minor updates that the car hasn't had. The manufacturer may have tweaked the transmission-shifting algorithm or some other parameters that are not crucial but may bring slight improvements to drivability, mileage or emissions. Since auto manufacturers are coming out with automobile updates every day, there may be a reprogram available for your vehicle. Stop by Dakota K Auto Repair & Tire Center or call us at 847-398-4645 to schedule an appointment!

Drivability
Drivability is the degree of smoothness and steadiness of your car's acceleration. Most modern cars are fitted with on-board computers that continuously check the readings from various sensors. In case of drivability problems, you will receive a warning message on your car's dashboard. To have your car diagnosed for drivability issues, visit Dakota K Auto Repair & Tire Center in Arlington Heights, IL 60004 today. At Dakota K Auto Repair & Tire Center, we have the necessary tools, training, and technology to diagnose and address your car's drivability issues.

Engine Controls
Basically, an engine control system is an on-board computer in your car. Like all computers, the engine controls are composed of hardware and software. Automotive engine control systems are responsible for regulating exhaust emissions, and providing increased fuel economy. To get the best out of your car's incredibly powerful technology, make sure engine controls are working properly. To check if your car's engine controls are working properly, call Dakota K Auto Repair & Tire Center today.


What Our Customers Are Saying

Brought my car in for a check engine light. The problem was diagnosed and situation resolved. They gave me a loaner car while the service was being performed making my day much easier.


-Rich L.

I've been coming here for almost 10 years. I always feel great about the service my car gets from Dakota. The staff is nice & helpful in explaining the estimates & repairs.


-Alan B.

Very honest, And great service!!!!


-Ricardo S.

Excellent service, I had no brakes. Pedal to the floor on my 05 Tahoe. Turns out the lines were rusted/rotted. Replaced with better materials all lines, hoses and fittings. Brakes are rock solid now. And all for a reasonable (yet still painful lol) price. Sometimes having an older vehicle just means this stuff needs to be done. Very pleased.


-Vince S.

Life Savers!! They towed, repaired, had reasonable pricing for repairs, and gave me a loner so I could get to work. They made my commuted break down stress free. Thanks guys and gal!!


-Daniel Z.

Great and very reasonable pricing and very knowledgeable service writers would most definitely send friends here they did great work on my diesel truck for a fraction of the cost of Ford.


-Kyle R.

I stopped by for a minor repair and they got me in right away. I was impressed with their professionalism and service. I will definitely be back.


-Dan T.

They do a great job on repairs, maintenance, etc. We've used their services for years!


-David C.

I must give these guys credit for simply standing by their warranty on a timing chain replacement that ended up having an issue. They towed in my car, diagnosed, took responsibility for and fixed the issue, without question or hassle, under their warranty. It is valuable to know they are an ethical shop.


-Blake C.

Helpful, considerate, friendly and very reasonable rates! The perfect combination when you need help with your automobile.


-Patricia C.

Amazing service. I came to the shop 2 hours before closing on Saturday. Muffler on my Nissan got loose and apparently detached from the exhaust. They've inspected the car and showed me where the problem was, recommended optimal and inexpensive fix, spent a great deal of time calling local suppliers to locate the proper part and got the job done before closing. Staff was very nice and professional. Job was done fast and inexpensive. Great local shop. Highly recommended.


-Dmitriy F.

I had the most pleasant experience with Dakota's. They charged me a reasonable rate, were honest with me, and lent me a loaner car while mine was in the shop for a few days. I definitely recommend them and definitely would come back!
