A borescope is one of many ingenious tools we have at Worcester’s Mobile Mechanic and it is constantly in use.
In this instance, it was used to confirm that an engine was not turning over correctly. We already knew that the crank was turning but needed confirmation that the camshafts were not turning.
We could have easily spent an hour and a half removing components to see if this was the case or remove a breather pipe before using the borescope.
This method actually saved the customer money as it gave us conclusive proof that serious engine damage had occurred which meant the customer made an informed choice to scrap the vehicle with minimum outlay at the garage.
Remember a poorly maintained vehicle is a breakdown waiting to happen. Come to the experts at Worcester’s Mobile Mechanic.
