Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Darrell's Firestone, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 248-477-9090 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.
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 Firestone in Farmington, MI 48336 today.
Darrell's Firestone has state-of-the-art equipment to provide computer reflashing to our customers in the Farmington 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 Firestone or call us at 248-477-9090 to schedule an appointment!
Mechanics at Darrell's Firestone are able to diagnose all the electronic parts in your car. For expert diagnostics services on your car's electronic devices, visit Darrell's Firestone today.
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 Firestone in Farmington, MI 48336 today. At Darrell's Firestone, 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 Firestone today.

Great speedy service. Caring and attentive. They shopped for best deal on parts since I had an older model car. Would not take my cars anywhere else.
My husband has been going to George for the past 15 years. He is honest and trustworthy. He wouldn?t trust anyone else to work on his Dodge Power Wagon. We highly recommend Darrell?s Firestone. Make sure you ask for George!!!
Our good friend of about 25 years George is now working at Darrell?s! We just had some repairs done there on our Honda! Outstanding and very fast service. A very fine place for our friend to work and great colleagues to work with! We are enchanted!!
For years my family has entrusted Darrel with the repair and maintenance of our vehicles. I have always found them to be very capable, courteous, and reasonably priced. Darrel has gone out of his way more than once to accommodate the needs of my family. I highly recommend them.
My mother was a long time happy customer of Darrell's. I needed new tires (haven't bought new tires in 10+ years). I took in a quote from a large tire store, and Darrell's beat the price on the spot. What's not to like?
My experience of Darrell's Firestone has been nothing but positive. My family followed George, "our car guy" from a different shop when he moved to Darrell's, and it's been a pleasure having them service our vehicles. It's the kind of shop that watches out for you, and that doesn't prey on unwitting consumers. If you're looking for a place you can trust, check out Darrell's.
I hvave had car serviced several times since finding this fine place. Prices reasonable and work reliable. They also have compassion. I am part of the deaf community and they bend over bacwards to make me understand and treat me with respect. The owner emails and sends texts too me to answer questions.
I was really pleased with the service at Darrells. I needed some hefty repairs and he gave me a loaner to use for a couple days, no problem. I was also very impressed when i first brought my car in. he took a big box of trading cards for my 2 boys to go through and take what they wanted! This was my first visit here, and I will be returning for any other maintenance needs. Highly recommend this place.
Honest and upfront. Very dependable. Nicest people you?ll ever meet. I trust them 100% and always try and get my repairs done there!
