Computerized Engine Analysis

In order to meet Federal Exhaust Emission and Fuel Economy regulations, today’s vehicles are equipped with highly sophisticated electronic engine control systems. These systems do not require periodic adjustments. The only services required on a scheduled basis are spark plug and filter replacement. Tune-ups, as we knew them, are no longer necessary.
Engine Control Computer
The computer receives information from a network of sensors and switches that convert engine operating conditions into electrical signals. Based on the information and instructions stored in the computer program, commands are then sent to three primary systems:

Ignition System
Fuel System
Emission Control System

The sensors that monitor one or more of these systems include

Mass Airflow Sensor
Throttle Position Sensor
Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor
Coolant Temperature Sensor
Exhaust Oxygen Sensor
Crankshaft Position Sensor
Camshaft Position Sensor
