The throttle body is a tube containing a pivoting flat valve (butterfly) that is used to control the amount of air entering an engine. In an electronically fuel injected car, a throttle position sensor and air flow sensor communicate with the computer, which supplies the corresponding amount of fuel needed at the injectors
Your vehicle's engine speed sensor, or vehicle speed sensor as it is also known, sends information to your car's computer about how fast the car's engine is spinning at any particular moment. The sensor does this by recording how fast the crankshaft of your vehicle is spinning. A faulty speed sensor can cause all sorts of strange problems in your car.
Computer systems now manage and handle more than ever, and your vehicle’s engine is no exception. Unless you’re still driving a decades-old model without digital components, your auto depends on a piece of computer hardware called the Engine Control Module, or ECM, to work correctly. This quite awesome little device has a big job. Simply put, it monitors, regulates, and adjusts the engine-related systems that make a car go. Knowing about what the ECM does and doesn’t do for your vehicle will make it much easier to understand and diagnose problems when those dashboard lights illuminate, or something just doesn’t feel right.
In today’s cars that are computer controlled, the definition of a tune up has really changed. On most cars the only parts that can really be replaced on most cars, are the Spark Plugs, Spark Plug Wires, Fuel Filters, Air Filters and Positive Crankcase Ventilation Valves (PCV Valve). There are not any components that require adjusting, setting or dialing in.
Weather and traffic conditions are unpredictable and when you're out on the streets driving your safety should always be a number one priority. Imagine when you least expect it a car cuts you off in some rainy weather, the first thing you do is slam on the brakes in hopes to avoid an impact.
