CarDoc :

Hello, I'm Jason. I will do my best to answer your question quickly and accurately using the information you have provided.

CarDoc :

ok, what I need to know is if you are planning on doing your own work, or looking for a suggestion of what to do next

CarDoc :

please understand that to diagnose this, some VERY specialized test equipment will be necessary

Customer:

wich test you mean

Customer:

i hawe maserati 3200 gt

CarDoc :

Meaning testing using a Maserati specific scan tool like this

Customer:

is saying check engine only

CarDoc :

correct, and a proper scan of the engine control module is absolutely necessary to begin with

Customer:

and is not power

Customer:

ok i know this

Customer:

so were are you

CarDoc :

as a regular visual check will not be sufficient here, and most garages will only have a basic scan tool, which may not show all of the trouble codes

Customer:

ok

CarDoc :

unfortunately, due to website rules, we're not allowed to exchange personal information beyond first names, but I can certainly try to point you in the right direction

Customer:

so i need to go only to maserati you mean

CarDoc :

not necessarily. There are independent shops who specialize in these types of cars

CarDoc :

and who charge much less than dealer prices

Customer:

ok

Customer:

so what do you think it can be

CarDoc :

hard to say. How many miles on the car?

Customer:

coz i really i dident use this car for 1 year and more

Customer:

is only staying in garage

Customer:

3600 miles only

CarDoc :

ok, so not driven in quite a while.

Customer:

is new car nearly

Customer:

yea

CarDoc :

The problem may be very simple such as a sensor, throttle body problem or similar

Customer:

every think in this car work perfekt is like new

Customer:

aaww

Customer:

i think so

CarDoc :

but impossible for me to determine without knowing the trouble codes stored

Customer:

coz somon tolld me

Customer:

is sensor only

CarDoc :

so let's do this. Can you give me an idea of whereabouts you live (that's ok), and I can try to direct you to a good independent shop?

Customer:

coz the car is new not used at oll

Customer:

stratford london

CarDoc :

Those folks have an excellent reputation. Not sure how far away from you they are

CarDoc :
