Engine Control Unit

The Engine Control Unit (ECU), also known as the powertrain control module, is located underneath the car's dashboard, behind the glove compartment. Its function is to read several sensors from various systems and convert the readings to control the fuel injection system, idle speed control system and ignition timing. This helps in increasing the power and responsiveness of your engine with greater fuel efficiency and less pollution.

With the help of the readings taken from various sensors, the engine control unit deciphers the proper intervals for scheduled maintenance. When it detects a problem inside the drive train, a message is sent by the unit to the operator. The oil conditions are also maintained by this unit. If you find that the engine control unit of your car is not functioning properly, you should replace it as soon as possible to avoid further damage. At Buy Auto Parts we sell a wide range of engine control units at unbeatable prices.
