Top Car Diagnostics related questions

A car diagnostic test can help you detect any underlying issues on your car engine, braking system, air conditioning system, power windows, and other components long before they can cause a breakdown or require expensive repairs. It also eliminates a lot of guessing on what is truly happening with your vehicle so you can have them resolved as early as possible.
Typically, your Tasker can complete the diagnostic test within an hour. However, it can also vary on the area to be tested and the amount of work required.
There’s a 30-60-90 schedule usually directed by several manufacturers, which means that it's highly advisable to have your car checked every after 30,000, 60,000, and 90,000 miles. Some technicians also recommend having your car checked at least once a year to uncover any minor problems that are not easily seen or felt. In case of urgent diagnostic testing, you can always find a professional Tasker that can immediately come over at your place.
The easiest way to find a reliable car diagnostic near you is through Airtasker. List down your car diagnostic needs and allow us to find you the best rated and reviewed mechanic within minutes!

What do car diagnostic services include?

A regular car diagnostic test can help you spot early problems with your vehicle before it leads to costly repairs and further damage. If you're short on time to arrange transport and drive to a dealer or repair shop, you can always hire a mechanic and have your car inspected at your convenience. The time and process for a vehicle diagnostic service vary on the areas that can be tested, such as:


Responsible for keeping your vehicle moving, the engine is the centre element of your car. Proper engine diagnostics management is critical to prevent any setbacks associated with faulty engines like fluid or oil leak, rattling noises, overheating, and ignition misfires.


Perhaps the most critical component of your car, even the slightest wear and tear on any part of your braking system will be a massive threat to safety. If you feel that your brakes are starting to act strange, you can ask your Tasker to conduct a diagnostic check to find any possible issue on the brake fluid, brake lines and hoses, brake pads, or brake discs. 

Air Conditioning System

Save yourself from the inconveniences of driving with a busted air condition system. A car diagnostic specialist can help you locate possible car leaks, vent issues, and other potential damage that might compromise your air cooling system's overall performance.


Drivers are all mandated to have fully functioning headlights to ensure optimum safety when driving at night or in any hazardous conditions. Your Tasker can help you keep track of your headlights and ensure that they are at their best state by inspecting the most vital areas like the bulb light, switch operation, headlight fuse, and light circuitry.

Power Windows

Power windows are integral for car safety and comfort, so don't settle with broken ones and have them regularly checked. With your Tasker's help, diagnose essential components, including window switches, wiring, regulators, and window motors.

My Mercedes Benz C Class 2004 Kompressor (Rego 1TF9MC) WDC2030422R154657 gets stuck in Neutral often and goes into Limp Mode. During that time, the Dashboard doesn't display the selected gear. Forums and normal mechanic who observed without doing diagnostics said could be Gear Selector Issues but needs Diagnostic Scanner Test. If anybody has a Proper Scanner to detect Fault Codes and advise me what to do, or disconnect the battery and reconnect it or use a quick screwdriver to diagnose the issue, it would help me a lot. (Whatever you could possibly do to fix the problem or give me an accurate diagnosis) Please help me (Mercedes Benz Specialist Preferred)
