The driver could also notice that the engine performance suffers overall. Many times, there will be other trouble codes, such as those for the injector circuit or misfire codes, are stored as well.

How does a mechanic diagnose the P2322 code?

Many vehicles that are on the road today have an onboard diagnostic computer. They have been commonplace for decades.

In most cases, they will also reset the codes and then take the vehicle for a test drive. They want to see if the code returns. If it returns, it means that there is an actual issue with the vehicle, and it wasn’t triggered by mistake.

Rodrigo was exactly on time, very professional and friendly. He assessed my car, let me know the exact problem when a previous mechanic from a shop in my area was unable to. I felt he was very honest and sincere letting me know the level of urgency that I deal with the issue. Absolutely no pressure. I will absolutely use Rodrigo the next time I need anything to do with my car and will tell everyone about him. This is such a great service, I will never go to another mechanic again. It is so convenient. I couldn’t be happier. :)
