Unusual and Intermittent Symptoms!


Sometimes we experience problems with symptoms that are intermittent and difficult to describe. Sometimes it is only a brief moment that we are aware of the event happening or after it has happened. This is a shops worst enemy, lack of detail in a complaint or when and where it may be happening. Without detail of the complaint and some particulars that may be an influence or guide to correction, additional costs may be incurred.

In an attempt to reduce the costs of diagnosis, EuroWerks has created a “Symptom Check List” to help identify when and where the problem may be occurring. Click on and print a copy. Fill out all of the information with detail. Keep the sheet at your fingertips, side door pocket or glove box, so you can conveniently add additional information as it becomes available. Drive the car for several days as need may require so you may provide additional information. Try to be critical of all of the particulars as relate to your car. The more you help us, the more it will help you.

Present the sheet on arrival for service and we expect to make you visit brief and avoid additional expense of having a technician driving the car around in search of the symptom. In many cases, a complete detail of the complaint may be enough for the technician to locate the cause. Needless to say, this will likely result in a real savings to you in the repair process.


Since you are here, print off a copy of both service sheets so you may place them in your glove box for added convenience. You never know when you may need to drop the car after hours or have that unusual symptom.
