Engine Management Repair
Whether your car is not beginning, has an intermittent issue or a caution engine light has actually come on, we can assist. Our service technicians can inspect your entire engine management system using a Scan Tool packed with information on the most recent designs to check out fault codes and live data. These are brought in a good part of the vans. Please discuss you have this kind of problem at the time of scheduling to guarantee we can send the appropriate van and mechanic.
All components can be examined such as ECU, Crank Angle Sensor, Cam Angle Sensor, Throttle Position Sensor, Air Flow Meter, Oxygen Sensor, Coil Pack, Ignition Module, BCM Module, DFI Module Air Temperature Sensor, Coolant Temperature Sensor, and Injectors.
The check engine light which is normally found in the instrument cluster is the engine management system’s warning light and is lit up if the ECU signs up a fault has actually taken place in the engine management system. If a fault happens the ECU will tape-record the fault code and this can be downloaded to assist in detecting faults with your vehicle.
Typical Engine light on problems consist of:
Oxygen sensor fault (can be triggered by bad quality fuel).
Catalytic convertor failure.
Emissions system fault.
The engine management system includes a number of components that are monitored by the electronic control unit (ECU). The ECU is a computer system which interprets electrical signals gotten from different sensing units and computes the appropriate fuel/air mixture to provide to the engine so that it can respond to various driving scenarios.
As the engine needs different quantities of fuel to suit various operating temperature levels (ie: cold engines require more fuel) the ECU has to establish the engine temperature level and does this via the coolant temperature level sensing unit. Ambient air temperature level also plays a function and an air temperature sensing unit sends out a signal to the ECU to assist determine the requirement for richer or leaner fuel mixtures.
The ECU indicates the fuel pump to run when the ignition secret is turned to the start position and the throttle position sensing unit helps the ECU determine whether the engine is idling, accelerating or at full throttle and the ECU adjusts the fuel mix to match. Fuel is provided under pressure to the top of the fuel injector which delivers fuel in a great spray into the induction system. The crank angle sensor gives the ECU a sign of engine speed and piston position to assist the ECU to identify injection timing.
Engine management systems also integrate the ignition system by managing to stimulate timing which results in optimised performance and emission levels. The majority of contemporary vehicles have a direct ignition system which utilizes an ignition coil for each cylinder. The ECU fires the coil at the right time utilizing recommendations from various sensors.
