Understanding More About ECU
It is very important to ensure that the engine of your car has a good engine control unit as this is one of the most basic parts that the whole engine needs for its smooth running. The whole engine of an auto machine relies on the engine control unit which is the major part of it.
It is important to understand that the whole performance of a vehicle as well as the process of fuel injection is highly influenced by the engine control module of the engine unit. Engine control unit has sensors for collecting data and microprocessors for analysing the data gathered in real time.
By gathering and evaluating data, the engine control unit therefore influences the fuel injection processes and other operations of the car to work in the right manner. It is also important to understand that the engine control unit can be tuned so as to meet all the needs that the customer has regarding to the performance of the car. There are several key functions of the engine control unit which every person should be aware of before buying his or her car. Some of the major functions of the engine control module of the car are discussed below.
One of the most common ways through which the engine control unit functions is by controlling the general fuel of the air fuel mixture that is used by the engine. The engine control module generally controls the air fuel mixture used by the engine by determining the amount of air fuel mixture being injected into the engine. It is therefore after this that the sensors and the microprocessors become so much necessary to gather and compute data so as to give results on the appropriate amount of mixture. The other function of the engine control module is to determine the injection duration.
This enhanced by deciding where it is the right time to deliver the air fuel mixture in the right ration or not. The other function of the engine control module is controlling the timing of the spark or the ignition. By controlling the timing of the spark, the engine control module therefore helps to provide better power and economy. The engine control unit generally helps to detect various problems in the compression stroke and thus working according the set timing of the ignition. The last function of the engine control unit is controlling on idle speed and variable valve timing.
