Did they give you the codes? Those codes are the first phase of the diagnostic procedures, without those there is no way to tell if they are headed in the right direction or not. So if it was a misfire code could be a coil, spark plugs, restricted injectors. ABS and VC have thier own set of codes, so they have to be diagnosed separately.
