Today, car manufacturers include at least one computer in motor vehicles. This computer's main function is to monitor and adjust engine and transmission operations. The computer receives input information from different sensors. The computer controls spark plugs, idle speed, and fuel injectors so as to get you the best possible car performance. Failure of the car computer will greatly affect the things it controls. To get the most out of your car's computer, have it evaluated regularly for updates and proper operation. If it is already failing, have it repaired or replaced. To have your car's computer handled by experts, visit Darrell's Auto Service and Towing in Wallingford, CT 06492 today.
Darrell's Auto Service and Towing has state-of-the-art equipment to provide computer reflashing to our customers in the Wallingford area. The primary reason to reflash a computer (which basically means updating or reinstalling its software) is that an update has been issued by the manufacturer. It's a very simple procedure, and there may be minor updates that the car hasn't had. The manufacturer may have tweaked the transmission-shifting algorithm or some other parameters that are not crucial but may bring slight improvements to drivability, mileage or emissions. Since auto manufacturers are coming out with automobile updates every day, there may be a reprogram available for your vehicle. Stop by Darrell's Auto Service and Towing or call us at 203-626-9741 to schedule an appointment!

Drivability is the degree of smoothness and steadiness of your car's acceleration. Most modern cars are fitted with on-board computers that continuously check the readings from various sensors. In case of drivability problems, you will receive a warning message on your car's dashboard. To have your car diagnosed for drivability issues, visit Darrell's Auto Service and Towing in Wallingford, CT 06492 today. At Darrell's Auto Service and Towing, we have the necessary tools, training, and technology to diagnose and address your car's drivability issues.
Basically, an engine control system is an on-board computer in your car. Like all computers, the engine controls are composed of hardware and software. Automotive engine control systems are responsible for regulating exhaust emissions, and providing increased fuel economy. To get the best out of your car's incredibly powerful technology, make sure engine controls are working properly. To check if your car's engine controls are working properly, call Darrell's Auto Service and Towing today.

I want to give a shout-out to Brian who towed my car last night during torrential rain. He was very kind and somehow got me in and out of the tow truck safely. I am almost 72, so this was not an easy feat. He also went beyond the call of duty and put my garbage bin and recyclable bin out near the road for pickup today. I can't thank him enough. And thank you for your service in the Navy.
I want to say a few words about Darrell's Auto Sales and Services: I moved into town early in the year 1985. I encountered a car problem and my previous mechanic was several towns away. Not knowing anything about Wallingford, I went to the original location of Darrell's on East Center Street fully expecting a hassle to get service, as I needed my car quickly to be able to drive to an out of state company meeting the following day. Darrell scheduled my service early AM the next day, as it was around 5 PM that I drove in, and repaired my car. Yes, the service was good but the integrity, communication, and courtesy was, and still is, equally as good. It is now 2018 and I am still going to Darrell's. That in itself should say something. It is a pleasure dealing with Darrell and his extremely competent head mechanic Leonardo (Leo). I do recommend this operation. They really stand behind their work. Thanks guys.
