How to use an endoscope to inspect your car vents

Car endoscopes can help to save money and time, allowing those who want to manage their vehicle maintenance the option.

A scope can even reach into smaller spaces like a car vent to diagnose problems without taking the car apart. Find out the other benefits of using an endoscope to inspect your car vents right here. 

Why would you use a car endoscope?

A car endoscope can save you time and money because you can figure out the problem with your car without taking it to a mechanic. Also, while most items, including hands, cannot reach into car vents, a borescope can easily go into tiny places and provide real-time visuals. Furthermore, the borescope can take pictures and videos to share with your mechanic or with friends who are helping to fix your vehicle. Finally, an endoscope can help make repair and maintenance easier and more accessible to home mechanics. 

Why would you run your endoscope through your car’s air vents?

An endoscope can help to diagnose a blockage, smell, and possible dead animals. Furthermore, an endoscope can help to remove dust and allergens from the air vents. Blockages can prevent the air from working and leave you unable to change the temperature in the car. Unbearable smells can make people in the vehicle sick as they can grow bacteria and even mold in the system. Finally, some people use an endoscope to determine a sound that starts when the AC is turned on. 

What should you do before inspecting your car vents with an endoscope?

First and foremost, you need to ensure the fan is off and disabled for the inspection. Second, perform a visual inspection first and listen for unusual noises. From there, you should be safe to use the endoscope. 

How much would a mechanic charge to inspect my car’s vents?

Most mechanics will charge at least $100 or more to inspect your car’s vents. However, by purchasing an endoscope, you can check them yourself for a fraction of the cost of a single visit to the mechanic for the same service. 

When should you take your car to a mechanic?

If you encounter an issue you cannot fix yourself or do not have time to fix the problem; you should visit a mechanic. Do not do any work you are unsure you are capable of, as this can damage the car. Limited experience can cause damages to the vehicle, but a mechanic can help to fix the problem. However, diagnosing the problem first can help make sure you get the correct help from the mechanic and allow you to know what to expect.
