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.
