A look at some of the var­i­ous Vaux hallf ocused di­ag­nos­tic tools used by DIYers and pro­fes­sion­als alike.

As Vauxhall en­gine man­age­ment has con­tin­ued to ex­pand in com­plex­ity, di­ag­nos­tic tools have proved to be an in­valu­able way of trou­bleshoot­ing. This is true for both the en­thu­si­as­tic home me­chanic and the pro­fes­sional tech­ni­cian, where help­ful elec­tronic di­ag­nos­tic de­vices have saved hours in head-scratch­ing – not to men­tion labour costs – by fault find­ing where once guess­work reigned supreme.

With a fo­cus on of­fi­cial Vauxhall equip­ment, we paid a visit to VXR sales and tun­ing spe­cial­ist, MW Per­for­mance, in or­der to ex­am­ine the de­vices most of­ten used to scan, iden­tify faults and pro­gram your Grif­fin’s ECU and its sup­port­ing elec­tri­cal sys­tems. We’ve also taken a look at some of the most pop­u­lar af­ter­mar­ket de­vices avail­able to help you care for your car.
