As technology increases, so does the number of functions in your car that are computer controlled. Poor driving experience can often be related to a malfunctioning computer or driving controls. We have the equipment and knowledge to diagnosis these often complicated systems that keep your car in top driving condition.
Modern car manufacturers include at least one computer in motor vehicles. This computer’s primary function is to monitor and adjust engine and transmission operations. The computer receives input information from different sensors. The computer also controls spark plugs, idle speed, and fuel injectors to ensure the best possible car performance. Failure of a car’s computer can significantly affect the functions it controls so it’s essential to have it checked periodically to ensure it’s performing as it is meant too.
Our ASE certified Mechanics can diagnose all problems with electronic components in your vehicle, and we have a full range of diagnostic equipment to get the job done right without unnecessary expenses replacing parts that are not malfunctioning. Our goal is to find the problem and fix it – nothing more – nothing less.
Drivability is the degree of smoothness and steadiness of your car’s acceleration. As mentioned above, most modern vehicles are fitted with onboard computers that continuously check the readings from various sensors and make adjustments when necessary based on driving conditions. In the case of drivability problems, you may receive a warning message on your car’s dashboard, or you may notice sluggish performance.
The engine control system is an onboard computer in your car. Like all computers, the engine controls are composed of hardware and software. Automotive engine control systems are responsible for regulating exhaust emissions and providing increased fuel economy. To get the most out of your car’s technology, make sure the engine controls are functioning correctly.
