ENGINE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

About the engine management systems on your car

The Engine Management System’s main function is to ensure the engine develops the power demanded by the driver, while at the same time keeping fuel consumption down and ensuring minimum emissions.

More recent Engine Management Systems combine all subsystems involved:
  • The electronic throttle control adjusts the correct air quantity for this engine torque.
  • The fuel injection subsystem injects the appropriate amount of fuel.
  • The ignition subsystem provides the necessary spark (electric current) at precisely the right moment in time.
  • Various names may apply for example ECM Engine Control Module, PCM Powertrain Control Module and the ECU Engine Control Unit.

The Engine Management System increases not only driving comfort, fuel and emission efficiency, but also the safety of the driver and occupants. For example, if the on board electronic stability program (ESP, SMC, PSM) or ABS system requires a particular level of engine power in order to ensure efficient vehicle traction, this power is adjusted by the engine management system. There may be other computer systems on your car that have specific functions and points of integration.

Electronic Fuel Injection – EFI

Some info about the electronic fuel injection on your car

Today, almost every car has a fuel injection system. At JCP Automotive, Our Morwell mechanic can perform work on cars requiring repairs to electronic fuel injection systems. Whether your car is having trouble starting, running rough, hesitating, has poor fuel economy or mileage, or has poor performance you may need to have the Fuel Injection System checked or cleansed and we can help.

The fuel injectors (especially the nozzles) operate in an environment where tremendous heat is generated. The burning of fuel leaves hardened carbon deposits on piston valves and the fuel injector nozzle head that reduces the performance of the spray pattern and flow of fuel. A fuel injection service will cleanse the injector nozzles, dissolving the carbon deposits and restore proper fuel spray and flow, improving performance, reliability and fuel economy.
