Your modern vehicle’s engine is a highly sophisticated piece of equipment. The days of your father’s gas-guzzler are long gone—instead, Federal Exhaust Emission and Fuel Economy regulations demand that today’s vehicles be equipped with electronic engine control systems, to curb carbon emissions and increase fuel efficiency. With technically-advanced control systems taking the place of simple engine components, common maintenance services such as tune-ups are also a thing of the past. Regular services (such as spark plug and filter replacements) are still required, as well as a computerized analysis of your vehicle’s control computer. Finish Line Performance employs highly trained technicians to provide the most accurate engine diagnostics for your vehicles.
Each year, vehicles get more and more complicated. Vehicles today might have as many as 50 microprocessors on them. Although these microprocessors make it more difficult for you to work on your own car, some of them actually make your car easier to service.
Some of the reasons for this increase in the number of microprocessors are:
•The need for sophisticated engine controls to meet todays high emissions and fuel-economy standards
•Advanced engine diagnostics
•Simplification of the manufacture and design of cars
•Reduction of the amount of wiring in cars
•New safety features
•New comfort and convenience features
